Inga Moore «Таинственный сад»

Российские читатели хорошо знают авторские работы британской художницы Инги Мур: ещё в 2013 году в издательстве «Добрая книга» вышли две книжки-картинки: «Капитан Кошкин» и «Домик в лесу». Читатели сразу заметили главные особенности её иллюстраций: они светлые, подробные, детализированные, а ещё очень идилличные – это какой-то идеальный мир, где нарисованные горы выше настоящих, реки – полноводнее, а в лесу сплошной рай для кроликов. Впрочем, в чувстве юмора художнице тоже не откажешь!
