On a recent vacation to New York City, my family and I roamed into a Brooklyn bookstore, Books Are Magic. While perusing the Children's section, I stumbled upon a brilliant seek-and-find book, The Lost Cousins, by a local, B.B. Cronin. (Of course, I got way too excited that the author-illustrator had the same last name as me). Every single page of the book was decorated with vivid, intricate illustrations and the most endearing characters. I was immediately hooked!
