Raul Colon was recently interviewed by Lauren Vander Pluym for Booklist Online, and her extensive research and thoughtful questioning culminated in a rave review that we couldn’t have done better ourselves.
Truly, this is a piece that deserves to stand on its own. Thank you to the author for this thoughtful look at Raul as an artist, as well as the in-depth curation of his many titles.
“Apes A-Go-Go!,” the catchy title from avant garde fashion designer-turned-author Roman Milisic and our very own A. Richard Allen, has been receiving warm praise in the UK for its endearing and wacky narrative.
But our furry friends cannot be contained! No no – in fact, they will be headed stateside, where they will be gracing the shelves of children everywhere. You have been forewarned!
Knopf/Random House has picked up this fun title and is very excited to be releasing it in July. Moreover, we are delighted that the news is spreading quickly, as Kirkus gave “Apes A-Go-Go” a very nice review, which you can read here.
Congratulations, Richard! We can’t wait to see this book on our local shelves!
Josée Bisaillon is back again with her latest picturebook, and we are so excited to see her bright and engaging illustrations bringing life to this wonderful story about family – and more importantly, belonging.
“Eat, Leo! Eat!” is her latest collaboration with Kids Can Press, and we couldn’t be happier to share this wonderful new tale with you.
Andrea U’Ren is packing her bags and getting ready to head to the Lone Star State! The award-winning illustrator recently picked up the prestigious Texas Bluebonnet Award for her work on One Potato, Two Potato, to be honored this spring in Houston.
Since 1979, the Texas Bluebonnet Award has been encouraging children to explore a variety of contemporary works while developing their powers of discrimination and an ability to identify favorites. Take a look at their website at http://txla.org/groups/tba/index.html to see when you can meet the artist and have a copy signed for your favorite little Southern fan!
