“As time went on, Matisse cut bigger and bigger shapes. They filled his seaside room with color. ‘You see, as I am obliged to remain often in bed … I have made a little garden all around me where I can walk. … There are leaves, fruit, a bird.'”

Mordicai Gerstein’s newest picture book, published by Little, Brown, will be released next week. This morning over at Kirkus, I weigh in on that one. It’s called The First Drawing, and that column is here.

Yesterday, I chatted here with picture book author Amy Hest about her newest Charley picture book, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, When Charley Met Grampa, to be released next week from Candlewick. (Remember last year’s book about Charley and Henry?) Next week here at 7-Imp, I’ll have some art from When Charley Met Grampa.

Last week at Kirkus, I wrote about Jeanette Winter’s Henri’s Scissors (Beach Lane/Simon and Schuster, August 2013). If you missed it, that link is here, and pictured above is a spread from the book.

Until Sunday …
