Flora’s Very Windy Day (illustrated by Matt Phelan) is now part of a collection that contains ten stories about girls being awesome or, in Flora’s case, a little stubborn.
The Penderwicks in Spring has received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly.
More sheep news. New Yorker cartoonist and cover artist Harry Bliss recently traveled to Russia, taking along a special friend, as shown in this video: http://vimeo.com/111492370. The picture book he mentioned is mine, due out in 2016 from Knopf.
Just received the Japanese edition of the first Penderwicks book. Notice how the girls are running from right to left, instead of left to right like they do on the American edition? This is because Japanese read in the opposite direction from Americans, starting at what we consider the back of the book.
