We believe that exposing yourself to different cultures and art forms will enrich both your professional and personal life. It stimulates you with new ideas and ways of understanding the world and helps you reach a healthy work/life balance.

This month, we want to show you some books that will bring out the inner child deep inside you.

The Dark, Lemony Snicket, Illustrated by Jon Klassen

A boy named Laszlo visits the dark in his basement in the hopes that the dark won’t visit him in his bedroom. The light and pitch black contrasting illustrations are what this book is all about.

Brush of the Gods, Lenore Look, Illustrated by Meilo So

Wu Daozi was not the best calligrapher so instead of drawing Chinese characters, he decided to draw horses, flying Buddhas, and even a butterfly that flys away. Every illustration in the book starts as a black and white sketch and eventually emerges as a living being full of colour!

The Tortoise & The Hare, Jerry Pinkney

Everyone knows about this classic Aesop tale but not everyone has seen Pinkney’s brilliant illustrations. The detail in the tortoise’s shell and the hare’s fur is more than enough to flip through all the pages twice over.
