7-Imp’s 7 Kicks #494: Featuring Serge Bloch

h1 July 31st, 2016 by jules

“And anyone else who wants to join in.”


I’ve got a review over at BookPage of Ian Lendler’s Saturday (Neal Porter Books/Roaring Brook, July 2016), illustrated by Serge Bloch. That review is here. Below are some spreads from the book; I always like to see Serge’s art.


“… so it’s my job to start them early!”

Saturday means taking a rocket ship ride to the moon.”

This is it! Moving weekend, that is. I am typing this earlier in the week, but it’s possible my computer won’t even be connected today (that is, Sunday — the day you read this). I will be able, however, to read your kicks via my phone, so …

What are YOUR kicks this week?
