What I’m Doing at Kirkus This Week,
Plus What I Did Last Week, Featuring Uri Shulevitz

This morning over at Kirkus, I write about Nina Laden’s Once Upon a Memory, illustrated by Renata Liwska. That link is here.

Last week, I wrote here about Uri Shulevitz’s Dusk, so I’m sharing some art from it today.

Enjoy.

  1. Beautiful!! Uri Shulevitz is one of my absolute favorite illustrators!


  2. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one! Love how the boy and dog are the same characters as in his book “Snow”.


  3. Saw this beautiful book when it was first released :D I’ve been an admirer of Uri Shulevitz for almost 20 years now, having read his well-known book for children’s book illustrators WRITING WITH PICTURES. It’s fantastic!


  4. This book looks gorgeous. Thanks for your many fine and fantastic books, Uri Shulevitz , which all help light the darkness, too.
