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.

Introducing our Newest Artist – Jonathan Bartlett!

This one has been a long time coming!

We have been admiring Jonathan Bartlett’s ever-evolving work for quite awhile now, and it has been truly enjoyable to follow his ascent as an illustrator. He has continuously impressed us with his juxtaposition of classical imagery and fresh symbols, and we’ve always appreciated his subtle surrealism that is grounded in nature. And don’t even get us started on that impeccable technique!

So it comes as no surprise that we were thrilled when the stars finally aligned and the timing felt right.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please take a moment to check out Jonathan’s wonderful portfolio and welcome this talented lad to the team.
