Today over at Kirkus, I take a look at Eric Carle’s newest picture book, The Nonsense Show (Philomel, October 2015). That link is here.

Since I wrote here last week about Julie Paschkis’ beautiful new picture book, Flutter & Hum / Aleteo y Zumbido: Animal Poems / Poemas de Animales (Henry Holt, August 2015), I’ve got a bit of art from it today.

For those interested in reading more, Julie wrote about the book here last week.

Enjoy the art!

… Una garza, / dos patas.”

    I have read a few reviews of this week in the past few days. I have got to get me a copy. I am a big fan of Julie’s art!
