It takes a fair amount of courage to launch a new season, but—like the heroine of
The Frog Who Wanted to See the Sea 
—we at Creative Editions have allowed our curiosity to lead the way and hopped eagerly into the spring publishing season. Navigating the waters with the help of innovative illustrators and thought-provoking authors from around the globe, we send our picture books, board books, and gift items forth through the pages of our new catalog.  As they journey out into a world beyond the cattails, may our treasures impart to you a sense of the delight we take in their making.
“One morning, feeling strangely courageous, the little frog asked a seagull about the world beyond the cattails.”

by Rudyard Kipling illustrated by Giovanni Manna 
 When Rudyard Kipling wrote the poem “If—” in 1909, he was addressing his 12-year-old son, John, who would die in battle a few short years later during World War I. The famous author’s words soon inspired a nation, and the poem has twice been voted Great Britain’s favorite. Italian illustrator Giovanni Manna melds the innocence of childhood  with the encouraging sentiments expressed by Kipling’s words in this tender portrayal of fatherly advice.
Rudyard Kipling spent the first half of his life shuttling between India, the country of his birth, and England, where he achieved literary fame. He became the first English recipient of a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, two years before he wrote “If—.”
Giovanni Manna was born in Florence, Italy, and has made illustrations for more than 80 books for children since 1995. He teaches watercolor at the International School of Illustration in Sarmede and was awarded the Andersen Prize for best Italian illustrator in 2003.
