Last Friday over at Kirkus, I wrote here about two recent reissues illustrated by Maurice SendakJanice May Udry’s The Moon Jumpers, originally released in 1959 from HarperCollins, as well as I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild’s Pocket Book, edited by the great Iona and Peter Opie.

I Saw Esau was reissued by Candlewick Press at the end of 2012 in honor of the book’s 20th anniversary.

Pictured above is a spread from I Saw Esau.

Today at Kirkus, I weigh in on Dan Yaccarino’s newest picture book, Doug Unplugged. That link is here.

Until later …
