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.
