Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography. This week, we’ve curling up with some children’s books.

Art school
Teal Triggs – Associate Dean at London’s Royal College of Art – teamed up with illustration Daniel Frost to create School of Art, a beautiful introduction to art and design aimed at children.

Monster’s ink
Peter Brown’s illustrations are a lovingly crafted mix of traditional and digital, like on his most recent book, My Teacher is a Monster. As you might gather from the title, his stories are also very funny.

Boys meets Martian
Oliver Jeffers has a spare illustration style but the results are always charming. The stories in his children’s books like The Way Back Home are similarly simple but impossible to resist.
