Thingummery on a handful of really rad kids books she's found recently in her estate sale travels. Plus, I'll be back more regularly with awesome things like the above end papers from Hugh Lofting's Doctor Doolittle in the Moon. Fabulous! Drawn & Quarterly has a new Astrid Lindgren reprint out, Pippi Fixes Everything. Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story is playing in NYC this weekend. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is out next weekend which is based (VERY) loosely on the brilliant followup to the actual book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs called Pickles to Pittsburgh.
And it's official, after all the books I've read to and supplied to my son, all he wants to do is draw and read graphic novels. My greatest dream and worst nightmare combined into one. Maybe Stephen King will someday show him that it's not necessary that all novels be read aloud by Mommy. :)
