Talking with Raul Colon

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.

Take a look here.

Fabulous New York Times Review for Josée Bisaillon!

It seems like we are not alone in swooning over Josée Bisaillon’s adorable children’s book illustrations! We were absolutely tickled to read this wonderful New York Times review of her work for “Mom, Dad, our Books, and Me,” written by Danielle Marcotte.

We were struck and moved by the reviewer’s focus on Josée’s outstanding contributions to the story. Oftentimes, the illustrations are treated as a bit of an afterthought – yet here they were celebrated just as proudly as the strong writing and charming narrative.
