I’m out of town this week for work, so here’s a quick note to say that tomorrow morning over at Kirkus, I’ll have some thoughts on Coretta Scott King Award-winner Andrea Davis Pinkney’s new children’s novel, Bird in a Box, published last month by Little Brown — with cover art and opening-chapter illustrations from Sean Qualls.
The Kirkus link will be here tomorrow morning.
Last week’s column was all about David Almond’s and Dave McKean’s Slog’s Dad, published in February by Candlewick. If you missed it, it’s here. And here at 7-Imp today, I re-post for you the two McKean spreads that were posted over there last week. You can click each one to supersize and see in more detail. Enjoy. And see everyone on Sunday, if you’re so inclined to come kickin’.
