Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki

SkimSkim by Mariko Tamaki

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was actually first turned on to Mariko and Jillian Tamaki when I read Hiromi Goto’s young adult novel Half World, which was nominated in Ontario for a White Pine award. I just can’t get enough of Tamaki’s style of elegance and simplicity in her drawings. There are subtleties in her writing and art that let my imagination fill in the blanks and I like that. I feel like the Tamakis treat me as an intelligent reader rather than being explicit.
