MY CURRENT NEWS (April 9, 2018):

Thrilled and honoured that SAM & EVA has been selected with Outstanding Merit in Bank Street College Of Education's "Best Children's Books Of The Year, 2018 Edition" list and shortlisted for the 2018 CLEL Bell Picture Book Award For Early Literacy!

If you pre-order I'M SAD by May 20th, I'll send you a hand-drawn/painted doodle and a bookplate signed by both me and author Michael Ian Black! Details here.

THRILLED to announce that I'll be doing a yet-untitled Broken Crayon picture book with Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park for Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers! I've posted about how this happened.

I'm excited about teaching a Getting To Know Your Picture Book course for Highlights Foundation; the online portion of the course starts in June.
