Notes on September 2019

In September . . .

. . . I tried to predict the 2019 New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books list.

It’s a list that’s even harder to predict than Caldecott, but I still gave it a shot.

. . . I chose 10 fall books I’m excited about.

After surveying the fall landscape, a batch of books jumped out at me.

. . . I interviewed Oliver Jeffers about his new book.

We emailed about The Fate of Fausto and snacks.
