More Picture Book Love and Miscellany

Whoever named the crucial final page turn in a picture book “the mother of all page turns” must have had Kevin Sherry’s I’m The Biggest Thing In The Ocean in mind (Dial, 2007). Oh my. It’s a doosie. If you haven’t read this book, please do. It’s hilarious, and the voice is perfectly kid-like. I won’t ruin it for you, but let me leave you with this thought: I’m the biggest thing on this blog. 🙂

In other news, I got word recently that Humpty Dumpty will publish a poem of mine in their 2010 March/April issue! Woo hoo! Thanks, Terry!

And…I am overjoyed to say that I am in critique groups with three, count ’em, three debut picture book authors whose books are recently out or are coming out within the next few months. Stay tuned for author interviews, but for now, here they are…

What Do You See? by Judith Snyder (Odyssey)
This Tree Counts by Alison Formento (Albert Whitman)
The Little Piano Girl: The Story of Mary Lou Williams, Jazz Legend by Ann Ingalls and Maryann Macdonald (Houghton Mifflin)
