Photo of the Day – August 11, 2010: Fisk & Fern and “The Walrus Wonder”!

Walruses have been woefully underrepresented in the markets of New York City.  But no longer.

I’d been reading online about a wonderful children’s book from Fish & Fern, especially from her colleagues in The {NewNew}.  I finally saw it for myself at the Hester Street Fair two weekends ago and bought it for my darling nieces.  But I just can’t let it go quite yet.

Laura Fisk is an expert illustrator and printmaker.  She creates cute, funny and whimsical images and prints them on notecards, aprons, journals, tea towels, and more.  The pancake monster apron is one of my very favorites.

And then there are the walruses.  This book is called The Walrus Wonder. It is beautifully illustrated, with strong characters and a great story about these wonderful creatures in their frozen world.  Oh – there’s dancing too!  I won’t give the story away, but trust me when I say that your kids will want you to read it over and over to them.

Meet Ms. Fisk in person at the markets.  Find Fisk & Fern Products in the online store, several fine shops, and on  You’ll also want to follow Fisk & Fern on Facebook and Twitter!
