What I’m Up to at Kirkus This Week,
Plus What I Did Last Week,
Featuring Debbie Ridpath Ohi

h1 October 18th, 2012 by jules

This morning at over the Kirkus Book Blog Network, I’ve got a Q & A with illustrator and graphic novelist Hope Larson about her graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, released by Farrar, Straus and Giroux this month. That link is here.

Tomorrow I will take a look at Henry Cole’s newest picture book, Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad, to be released by Scholastic in early November. That link will be here on Friday morning.

Last week, in case you missed it, I wrote about Michael Ian Black’s I’m Bored (Simon & Schuster, September 2012), illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Here’s that link, and below are more illustrations from the book. (Did you all see author/illustrator David Small’s thoughts on I’m Bored over at the New York Times in September? That is here.)

  1. Oh wow, thanks so much for posting about I’M BORED here (and in the Kirkus Reviews blog). I adore Seven Impossible Things and it’s an honor to be mentioned here. 🙂

  2. I keep hearing good things about Larson’s Wrinkle in Time adaptation. I’m going to have to check it out: you know how I love Charles Wallace.

  3. I just read your post about Henry Cole’s upcoming book. I had heard of the book before but not realized that Henry Cole was the author. I’m very intrigued now, but the subject matter and drawings that are different from past Henry Cole books. Looking forward to seeing the illustrations in person.

  4. Yes, it’s such a departure for him, isn’t it, Amy? I mean, I’m used to seeing his bright, colorful cartoon art, though I realize he may have done similar books to this in the past that I’m just not aware of. I believe he’s had a long career in children’s lit, yes?

  5. I can’t wait to read I’m Bored! Looks like it will be good for some giggles!
