Andy Runton has unveiled the new posterÂ for theÂ American Library Association‘sÂ ReadÂ campaign, which features his cuddly character Owly. Â Next to the poster, there’s also a Â newÂ bookmark, which will doubtlessly find its way into many a collection worldwide.
I just adore the way Runton has been able to incorporate the campaign message in a way that even little children can understand. Â A love of books should be nurtured even before children actually learn to read in order for reading to become a natural state of being.
Congratulations, Andy !
