Tell us: what's one picture book you adore?

Tony and I have been kicking around the idea of a kid’s book. It’s had me digging through the various mini-libraries around the house to pull out some of my favourites and try and reverse-engineer what makes them so great.

Today I wanted to know: what’s one picture book you adore? Something you’ve read back to front dozens of times and you still keep coming back to. Or something that your little one adores even though they’re probably a little too old for it and won’t let go. One that you’d buy as a gift for a friend’s kid in a heartbeat.

Bonus points for any warm fuzzy details about reading it with your kids …
