This morning over at Kirkus, I write about Salina Yoon’s Found. That link is here.

Last week, I wrote (here) about Liz Garton Scanlon’s The Good-Pie Party, illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton (Scholastic, April 2014), and Rosemary Wells’s Stella’s Starliner (Candlewick, March 2014).

Today, I’ve got a bit of art from each book, as well as some early sketches from Kady.

Enjoy.

  1. I wish Scholastic and Candlewick would do a joint book tour featuring “Stella’s Stariiner” and “The Giiod-Pie Party” with pie parties in silver RV’s. Nothing beats good pie ub a icozy spot with friends.


  2. Oh, hey. I’m totally up for the pie parties, Airstream-style! Thanks for doing this post, Jules. That’s the first I’ve seen of these sketches — how fun!


  3. Don’t you just love seeing her sketches? She’s one of THOSE artists for me — that even the sketches are entertaining in many directions.


  4. Can’t wait to read both of these–and those outdoor scenes in Starliner–amazing…
