Video Premiere: The Making of Nerp

I got seven words for you. Ready?

“Fancy monster foods inspired by 1950s recipes.”

Are you sold yet? Because I personally did not realize until I watched today’s video by Sarah Lynne Reul that somewhere deep inside of me I’ve been waiting for the picture book equivalent of The Gallery of Regrettable Foods all these years. As you may recall, I reviewed Reul’s latest picture book Nerp not too long ago. Now she has a Making Of video that’s a lot of fun. Watching it, you understand what Ms. Reul means when she says that, “working on this book helped me realize that diving deep into odd combinations of specific things can be really fun.”

May we all find the right odd combinations in our own lives.


Many thanks to Sarah for the video!
