I was just catching up with my HORN BOOK reading…love that magazine…. and noticed that Melissa Iwai has a nice review in the Sept Oct edition for TRUCK STOP, written by Anne Rockwell from Viking. It’s a lovely story about noticing and caring, but is a must for any young truck lover! “Iwai’s mixed-media collage art uses texture, bright colors, and a variety of perspectives to draw readers in.” It’s an honor to get a review in Horn Book. Book deserves it….. Hope you’ll check it out.
Melissa’s also been busy doing signings…one today at Books of Wonder in fact! (NYC…favorite book store!) And these will include the new full length board book of B IS FOR BULLDOZER written by June Sobel from Houghtin Mifflin Harcourt. It’s been a trade book since 2003 but this is new….lovely to see new editions keeping a good book in print longer. Again, for the truck loving child it’s such fun!
And if you haven’t yet visited Melissa Iwai’s blog THE HUNGRY ARTIST you are missing good food and insider artist tips….yummmm…..
