More Tomi Ungerer!

Rising from the dead here to post this little tidbit from Tomi Ungerer's social media feed. Phaidon is releasing a single slipcased volume of eight of Tomi's newish and classic books, The Three Robbers, Moon Man, Otto, Fog Island, Zeralda's Ogre, Flix, The Hat, and Emile. Psyched! And in case you missed it a million years years ago, travel back in time to my interview with Tomi himself!

I miss you guys. I always have new stuff to share, but never enough time to share it. (And for those who are interested, check out my storytelling piece on Texas Public Radio.)

Happy Monday kids!

The Dead Bird Rereleased

Personal fave The Dead Bird by Margaret Wise Brown has been released by HarperCollins with new illustrations by Caldecott-winner Christian Robinson. Remy Chalip's original illustrations for this classic on love and loss will always be the best to me, but I do delight when a book that's been lost to generations of children gets reinvented so it can be loved once again. And Robinson is obviously skilled for the task. Other awesome books by Charlip include ThirteenArm and Arm, and Mother Mother I Feel Sick Send for the Doctor Quick Quick Quick. And maybe Margaret Wise Brown really will live forever. Wouldn't that be something?

If you can get your hands on the December 2000 issue of Vanity Fair, there is an article about Ms. Brown that is spectacular! Not to be missed.
