Thanks to my fabulous friend (and crazy dog lover!) Gail Devins for creating this doggone adorable STAY display for the Ames Free Library. Isn't it perfect?
Did you know Stuart Little had an almost-girlfriend? Neither did I until I reread the book while serving as writer-in-residence for the Ames Free Library. I wrote about it here in my last newspaper column of the month.
Here's an interview I did with the Springfield News-Leader. The bit I said after my comment about the Rhode Island School of Design got cut, but let the record reflect (especially for my niece who's studying at RISD) that I said as a reader, I *like* minimal, postmodern, Rhode Island School of Design-y picture books. But I want to write only one kind of picture book, which, in today's world, might considered a bit old-fashioned. Just FYI.
If you happen to be in the Boston area on 8/24, please consider attending this "doggone literary" event. So flattered the nice folks here in North Easton find me "charming and prolific."
And never mind that we don't understand a word they're saying.
Thank you, Pamela Kramer and Huffington Post, for the nice shout-out (or should I say bark out?) for our new picture book, Stay.
The highlight (so far) of summer 2017 was leading a group of women entrepreneurs from Rwanda and Afghanistan turn their business plans into picture books. It was so fun! Read all about it right here.
But it turns out you're writing about something else entirely. More about this in our interview with The Horn Book here.
