ESTER GARCÍA & WHY CATS DON’T WEAR HATS.

10/25/2015,

On this cold Sunday afternoon, I am deeply enjoying Why Cats Don’t wear Hats (edited by Epigram books Singapore), a beautiful tale written by Victoria Pérez Escrivá and illustrated by Ester García.  Why cats don´t wear hats has also been published in French by Editions Tourbillon and in Denmark by Jensen & Dalgaard.

It seems like a simple story, but it leads us – both kids and adults- to question us about important issues:

Have you ever thought why you have so many things?

Why cats don’t wear hats?

It has been said that Ester Garcia’s  world  “smells of autumn and tea time”.

She is a Fine Arts graduate from the University of Salamanca, and her Instagram account is such a delight: pencil drawings, elegant characters, animals, romanticism and far landscapes of her many travels.

In this digital era, and in our unparalleled excess world, it is so comforting to touch and feel these beautiful drawings on paper, and to consider with our kids:

 

How many things are you wearing that are not yours?

Take them away, and be yourself, whatever you are!

Over the years, Ester García has illustrated many amazing books. Now that Autumn will be ending soon, I recommend you her book The Winter Train.

I also would like to suggest you to follow her blog Estarse Quieta (all her posts are published in both English & Spanish), where Ester is really generous and  shares with her followers her routines, inspiration, recent works and many illustrations.

I think that good illustrators, like Ester García, have the power to translate us to a better, natural, and a serene dream world.
