Notes on August 2020
In August . . .
. . . I shared a special cover reveal Q&A.
Because it’s for a book I wrote: Blue Floats Away. I loved talking with illustrator Grant Snider about the cut paper artwork.
. . . we did a little Newbery and Caldecott check-in.
Which books do Goodreads readers have as their award favorites? To the lists!
. . . we learned that Narwhal is branching out to the board book world.
It was fun talking with author/illustrator Ben Clanton about Narwhal’s new format.
