The Children’s Book Council Honors Simona Mulazzani

The Children’s Book Council, one of North America’s foremost supporters of children’s literature and reading, recently honored “Rock-A-Bye Romp,” a darling play on the famous lullaby, written by Linda Ashman and illustrated by our own Simona Mulazzani.

Their “Hot off the Press” list, which features anticipated bestsellers, is a unique and impressive collection of fun titles, and we couldn’t be happier to see Simona in such nice company.

Take a look at the complete list here.

Audible recently came up with a wonderful campaign to celebrate their brand while honoring their loyal customers, and the result is just spectacular.

Customers were asked to answer the question, “Where does Audible transport you?” The winning responses are now being brought to life through the vision of talented illustrators like Victo Ngai.

Take a look at her intricate drawing coming to life.

And congratulations on yet another awesome campaign, Victo!
