Connoisseur is the flagship picture book series produced by Childlike Dream. This series is for satisfying the strictest aesthetic requirements for fairy tale arts from you and your children. The outstanding taste and elegant style makes it special and bright among worldwide picture books. The Connoisseur Series insists on following a strictly traditional method of making picture books, which embodies the persistent pursuit of perfect fairy tale arts presented by Childlike Dream. All the stories were written by leading contemporary fairy tale writer Mr Xin Wang, who was also the art designer and directed professional painters finishing the work by all hand-painting techniques. The best available fidelity and printing techniques were employed to represent the most real art. The Connoisseur Series is aimed at cultivating the noble temperament and sentiment, and the graceful demeanour and culture in its readers, so that children can be edified in the pure artistic environment and affected by the profound cultural accumulation. In the Connoisseur Series, the painting style depends on the connotation of the story, making the aesthetics pure and vivid. Each picture book is illustrated by the carefully selected artists who possess a profound understanding of the subject matter. Every brush stroke contains full passion and a heartfelt wish of the creator with a noble aesthetic sentiment throughout the works. Explore the secret of the eternal philosophy of life in colourful pigments, and enjoy the glamour of all kinds of painting styles in the beautiful fairy tales. The kaleidoscopic colour twinkles with the flowing emotion, forming a splendid epic of art, bringing the long-anticipated spiritual shock. Come linger in an ancient exotic story, stay in natural colours, in between brush strokes denoting the cool breeze in early spring, the song of insect in midsummer, the fallen leaves in bleak autumn, or the starry sky in the late winter. Smell the bluish lakeside, fragrance of flower, cool of ice, and warm of sunshine in the words. These exquisite picture books witness the enduring vitality of Childlike Dream in the river of time. This is the exclusive luxurious enjoyment of the Connoisseur Series. Accompanied by Childlike Dream, the quiet and pure heart could be maintained even in the passage of time, and the attitude to the vicissitudes of the world could be calm. Whether in art or life, you could become an excellent connoisseur.
The old, cruel king was dead. All over the kingdom there were celebrations, for no one had loved the king. Some said they had praised him, fearing what he might do to them. The old, cruel king was dead; hope rose like a pillar, sturdy and strong; it climbed up, up, up to highest heavens. There would be kindness in the land. There would be love and honour for all. There would be happiness in abundance; poverty, abuse and disease would be no more. Or so they thought...

Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox
The first man and woman are lonely. What to do? They decide to fashion children out of clay. As they are baking the little figures in their fire, they're constantly interrupted by visits from the sky-god, Nyame. As a result, some of the children are pale and underdone, some are left in so long that they come out very dark, and the rest are every shade between. Frane Lessac's gorgeous gouache paintings, inspired by West African masks and pottery, and Eric Maddern's vivid text make this one of the most compelling of creation myths for young readers.
