A Giveaway! (Oh, and a Newsletter)

Oh yes, I’m starting a newsletter.


If you sign up, it will be delivered to your inbox on the first Friday of each month (beginning in September) and is likely to include:

  1. Book recommendations – for kids, grown-ups, and grown-ups who like books for kids.
  2. Drawings. Scribblings. Crudely drawn comics. Stuff like that.
  3. The occasional giveaway.
  4. Secrets.
  5. Fun things that don’t quite make sense for me to share elsewhere.

Sound like something you might enjoy? Click here to sign up.

Ready for a kicker? Here’s a kicker. If you sign up for the newsletter today, you will be entered to win one of my all-time favorite books about books:


It’s a book every picture book lover should own. If you’re into the history of picture books, this is for you. It’s really good, and I’m giving away one copy.

Here goes nothin’.
