Sky High

Sky High, written by Germano Zullo and illustrated by Albertine, is one of the best children’s books I’ve ever seen. The storyline focuses on two competing neighbors – Agenor-Agobar Poirier des Chapelles and Willigis Kittycly Junior – who are both attempting to build the bigger, better house. The home improvements start small and grow incredibly absurd, with Albertine’s illustrations playing the star and Zullo’s sparse words assisting. The best part about Sky High is that the adult reading will enjoy it as much as the child(ren) listening, so good!

Anorak Trunks

 

I grew up with a large steamer trunk (my dad’s) for a toy box, later in life I owned a few super cheap versions for summer’s at camp. None looked anything like these, but Anorak’s steamer trunks make me happy. They’re canvas-coated, and the deer pattern could make a nice little home at the bottom of my bed for linen storage.
