All Things Bright and Beautiful REVIEW



I have had the delightful pleasure of reviewing "All Things Bright and Beautiful," a book illustrated by Katy Hudson that features the hymn of Cecil Frances Alexander of the same title. This is a lovely hardback children's book. I was wow'ed by the colors. Mr. B is quiet "old" for a book of this sort, but I knew he'd enjoy the artwork, and he really does! I love the pace of the book, and the flow of all of the images. It's not overwhelming, but a work of art. Very well done!




About the book:
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”



About the artist:
Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time.
