‘Yes,’ says George. ‘I’ll be very good.’”
Tomorrow morning at Kirkus, I take a look at the new picture book from author and illustrator duo Kyo Maclear and Isabelle Arsenault. It’s called Virginia Wolf, and I love it. (I also very briefly discuss the topic of depression in contemporary picture books.) The link will be here tomorrow.
Last week, I covered Chris Haughton’s Oh No, George!, which will be released by Candlewick in March. I noted in that write-up that Haughton is a British author/illustrator, but he’s really Irish (and currently living in London). So, that’s for the record there. Error all fixed.
I like this book. Funny and puts the very quirk in quirky. But there’s more about it at last week’s link. Above is a spread from it, and here’s one more. Enjoy.
