Ms. Candice's thoughts on children's authors Saxton Freymann & Joost Elffers

The most remarkable thing about authors Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers's books is not the stories themselves, although they are simple and thoughtful, but rather the ingenious illustrations which are crafted from various raw fruits and vegetables. The expression conveyed by mere vegetables crafted into dogs, sea creatures, and various other animals and objects is artfully amazing. Some of Freymann and Elffers's titles include; Fast Food , One Lonely Seahorse , and Dr. Pompo's Nose , which explores the journey of a pumpkin to reclaim his misplaced nose.
