I really love the deceptively simple art Bob Staake does.

I remember seeing one of his shape board books and I though I said I got it for my son; I really got it for myself!

It just has so much personality.  

Here's an interview (link) with Bob Staake and some behind the scene sketches from his 'Birdbird' book (link to the book's site) and his sequel to 'Look! A Book", the appropriately named "Look! Another Book2"...
