Sorry I've been away so long! The last 12 months have been crazy, and out of those 12 months, I've been home fewer than six. Lotsa traveling, and this spring I scheduled twice my usual number of author visits to schools, for reasons I'm still trying to untangle...
Oh yeah. So then, this happened:
As we said in our acceptance speech (at least, I think we did... it's kind of blurry), we owe huge thanks to our editor, Shana Corey, and our art director, Cathy Goldsmith, who really helped us create the format of BABYMOUSE and figure out how it would all work. And, we also owe huge thanks to the librarians of the world, who have always been the biggest champions of graphic novels and comics for kids—they see, every day, which books get checked out, and which books turn non-readers into readers. Couldn't have done it without you folks!
I promise to post a bit more often from now on. The end of summer is shaping up to be just as busy as spring was, so stay tuned for more events and more exciting book news!
