True to my New year's Resolution in this post, I've been reading 5 books a week, rating them, and researching the agents who represent. Here are some of my favs so far:
The Santa Trap - Jonathan Emmet and Poly Bernatene, really funny with a satisfying ending
Tornado Slim and The Magic Cowboy Hat - Bryan Langdo, great illustrations
Crankenstein - Samantha Berger and Dan Santat, really funny illustrations that go with snappy story
Carnivores - Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat, this book is funniest book I've read in a while. Great story and great illustrations.
Also over on Word Disco this week I discuss what happens when a sketch for a good idea leads to an existential crisis. It's all part of the job. Read that post here.
