School Library Journal Editors' Picks!

I'm with great company, with so many awesome board books.

"Urban explores animal-related idioms through a fun guessing game
that pairs bouncy rhymes with close-ups of different faces.
A whiskered, sharp-faced creature describes itself as
"Quick and cheeky, smart and sneaky.  I'm sly as a ..."
A page turn reveals the answer: a fox.  Vibrant images fill each page,
accompanied by large text.  Strategically placed die-cut holes and flashy,
fun details (a red bandana for the ox, a pair of sunglasses for the bat)
add to the charm."  - Mahnaz, Dar,  SLJ January 2018

Happy New Year!

Happy 2018 my friends!
I'm kicking off the new year with a book birthday!
It's so awesome to finally see
Quiet as a Mouse: And Other Animal Idioms hit the shelves!
Indeed, I am happy as a clam.
Cheers to an amazing and creative new year!

"It's a visually dramatic and playful exploration
of animals and language - especially the final scene
featuring a very happy clam with mirrored sunglasses."
