She just wants to be loved.”

This morning at Kirkus, I write about the anniversary edition of Heather Has Two Mommies, as well as a couple of Heather’s descendants. That link is here.

Last week I wrote here about an import originally published in France in 2013, Sibylle Delacroix’s Prickly Jenny (Owlkids Books, March 2015), so today I’m following up with some art from the book.

Enjoy.


“There’s nothing but ice cream for dessert,
and Jenny says she wants nothing to do with it.”

“Jenny doesn’t know what she wants today.
But tomorrow, when she’s bigger, it will get better.”

  1. I think we need to call this book Prickly Karen because this is how I feel. Buying this book. NOW!!!


  2. Karen, I very much related to Jenny too! Hope you enjoy the book.


  3. These muted illustrations really have her “prickliness” down! 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Julie 🙂
