Crossover Picturebooks

This book situates the picturebook genre within the widespread international phenomenon of crossover literature, examining an international corpus of picturebooks — including artists’ books, wordless picturebooks, and celebrity picturebooks — that appeal to readers of all ages. Focusing on contemporary picturebooks, Sandra Beckett shows that the picturebook has traditionally been seen as a children’s genre, but in the eyes of many authors, illustrators, and publishers, it is a narrative form that can address any and all age groups. Innovative graphics and formats as well as the creative, often complex dialogue between text and image provide multiple levels of meaning and invite readers of all ages to consider texts that are primarily marketed as children’s books. The interplay of text and image that distinguishes the picturebook from other forms of fiction and makes it a unique art form also makes it the ultimate crossover genre. Crossover picturebooks are often very complex texts that are challenging for adults as well as children. Many are characterized by difficult "adult" themes, genre blending, metafictive discourse, intertextuality, sophisticated graphics, and complex text-image interplay. Exciting experiments with new formats and techniques, as well as novel interactions with new media and technologies have made the picturebook one of the most vibrant and innovative contemporary literary genres, one that seems to know no boundaries. Crossover Picturebooks is a valuable addition to the study of a genre that is gaining increasing recognition and appreciation, and contributes significantly to the field of children’s literature as a whole.

I loved the story and appreciate you allowing me to pre-read it. This story is awesome and culturally diverse. It brings an acceptance to blindness, and shyness as well as expressing that no-one can prevent anyone else from dreaming. It has a strong family bond across generations and accepts differences. It also recognizes the arts and how important they are as band, chorus, dance, and strings are always at risk of being removed from school curriculum. Jodi Pankowski Principal, Independent Hill and Pace For the Child in Each of Us Edward Gabriele Author, Poet, Teacher Children are fascinating. Stories written about them or for them are equally so. In the pages to follow, you will enter into an amazing world. George Brummell’s work The Mole and the Violin will stoke your imagination and fill you with wonder. The tale of Mikey the mole and his friendship with Emma the violinist is more than a story. It is an experience and a journey. But an experience of what? A journey where? These questions require a bit of reflection. We adults treasure our experiences with children and the stories for and about them. Both are precious. We hear our children laugh, and it moves us to laugh with equal energy. We hear them cry or we hear horrific tragedies such as the one that befell the children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and we are overwhelmed with sadness. We walk into our children’s bedrooms and see them sleeping, and we watch with a tenderness that cannot be captured in simple words. When we encounter little ones in life, we treasure in them all that we have been and wish still to be. In them, we see our own dreams, hopes, fears, loves, joys, our very selves. In The Mole and the Violin, we have an exquisite story where a seemingly insignificant animal from the dark corridors of the earth burrows his way daringly up to the surface. He risks to experience something different. When Mikey unearths himself, he hears something so beautiful that he cannot help but follow its path—even though it means risking a possible encounter with real danger. He risks and runs headlong into a creature making the most beautiful sounds he has ever heard. Suddenly he knows the experience of desire. He wants to be caught up in the beauty of what he hears, and this leads him to befriend the human girl, Emma. She cannot believe he talks. He cannot believe she cares. His search and her amazement bring them together as friends; and suddenly they come to teach each other things utterly new and wondrous. Like all other children’s stories, The Mole and the Violin is just as much for adults. The pages you are about to turn are more than just a story. They are the doorway into an experience—an experience of who we are and all we wish to be as humans, as family members, as friends, as citizens of this wonderful planet, as the dreaming children we never cease to be. George Brummell has given us a gift far greater than just a story. Like all children’s literature, he has given us a story that we do not just read to ourselves or to our children. He has given us a living pathway on which we journey with our children toward that moment we all crave when our dreams might become waking realities. As you burrow through the following pages, listen carefully. You too just might hear the sound of something musically wonderful. But be careful. It just might make you want to burrow open your heart to a stranger, sing to a melody our world too often does not hear, and learn to love enough to make a new music that sets all the world a’dancing.
