Over at Kirkus today, I have a back-and-forth with author-illustrator Victoria Jamieson, pictured here, about her first graphic novel for children, Roller Girl, which will be on shelves next week — and which is really good.

Next week, I’ll have some art from the book, as well as some early sketches and such.

Until tomorrow …
