Which Maurice Sendak Book Are You?


Because when it comes to downright silly blog titles, I am one with the universe. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Maurice Sendak was heard to say that of all his books over the years his favorite, without a doubt, is Outside Over There.  Funny.  I would have pegged him as a Higglety Pigglety […]

Fusenews: I figure if I write a book called “Shiny Chimes” I’ll have it made


If I’m not too incorrect I believe that today is the last day for SLJ editor Brian Kenney before he steps off and joins the White Plains Public Library as their Director.  It was Brian who first tapped me to become an SLJ blogger, and who, in effect, “discovered” me.  He’s been a wonderful editor […]

Children’s Illustrators and The New Yorker

New Yorker Covers-5

My husband Matt pairs well with me for a number of reasons.  Amongst them is our mutual inclination to collect things we love.  As such, Matt has systematically been holding onto all his issues of The New Yorker ever since he got his subscription in college.  Over the years these issues have piled up piled […]

Fusenews: Putting the haha in the brou


Well, far be it from me to begin with a Facebook link when I know full well that some of you don’t have Facebook accounts and still others can’t view Facebook links while you’re at work (schools in particular come to mind).  But this is just so kinda cool that I can hardly resist.  If […]

Video Sunday: Featuring world famous cheesy animation technology


Recently I’ve been trying to get in touch with Mr. Pilkey because I have a very very important question to ask him.  Unfortunately, he spends a goodly time of his life in Japan without access to email (or so I’ve been told). Fortunately, (this is turning into a Remy Charlip book) he recently made this […]
