What I’m Doing at Kirkus This Week,
Plus What I Did Last Week,
Featuring Leo & Diane Dillon and Liniers

h1 August 15th, 2014 by jules



 

Today over at Kirkus, I write about a new collaboration from J. Patrick Lewis and Gary Kelley, Harlem Hellfighters.

That is here.

Last week, I chatted (here) with Diane Dillon, and I also wrote (here) about Liniers’ What There Is Before There Is Anything There (Groundwood, September 2014).

Today I have art from that book (pictured right), as well as the last book Diane and Leo Dillon did together (pictured above), If Kids Ran the World (Blue Sky Press/Scholastic, August 2014).

Enjoy …

“Maybe we’d run the world in a big tree house,
and everybody would be welcome.
We’d take care of the most important things.”

“We know people are hungry, so all over the world, everyone would have enough to eat. The food would taste delicious, and it would make people healthy and strong.
Kids who had extra food would help bring it to people who needed it.”

“And that’s why, if kids ran the world,
we’d make it a wonderful place for everyone to live.”

  1. I love the Dillons!!! 🙂


  2. I read your review, and wanted to let you know that what you described was sleep paralysis. I have it too and only found out the name as an adult.


  3. Oh, wow. Thanks, Kerry. I’ve never heard that phrase. I’ll go read about it.
