Over at Kirkus today, I’ve got three brand-new picture books. That is here.

Last week I wrote here about Richard Jackson’s Snow Scene (Neal Porter/Roaring Brooke, November 2017), illustrated by Laura Vaccaro Seeger, as well as Paul Harbridge’s When the Moon Comes (Tundra, September 2017), illustrated by Matt James. I’m sharing art from both books today. (The illustrations Matt sent from When the Moon Comes are sans text.)

Enjoy!

 

From When the Moon Comes:


 


“At four, we are on the road. The sun is almost down.
Already the cold has settled, biting noses and cheeks. …”

“The fire crackles high and hot. … The harsh smoke burns all our eyes in turn,
but it is warm and we do not mind.”

“The game is on, and our shouts
rise up and disappear into the cold, black sky. …”
