Yesterday I posted a ‘brag’ about one of our artists, Nicole Tadgell, (‘Out of this World’)….. but then realized I hadn’t really said HAPPY NEW YEAR!! and I certainly DO wish you all a great 2019!!
It’ll bring it’s challenges…. many of us may have already been hit with some. But isn’t that the way? just another year full of surprises….good and not so good. But FULL of stories! let’s tell and show our stories with joy! 😉
I also realized I had lots more artists to brag about! Many we can’t yet, (darn!) but we WILL! keep watching on our FB and Blog here. Let me get to some recent nice reviews and awards…..
Melissa Iwai – THIRTY MINUTES OVER OREGON from Clarion – illustrated Iwai: Jr Library Orbis Pictus Honor Book for 2019 and a Guild Selection for TX Topaz Reading list for 2019 as well. (SUCH an interesting, surprising WWII story!) ALSO: Mr. Schu and Colby Sharp’s Blog “Best of the year list #12 non-fiction!!
Patrice Barton – 12/14 PW Review of REMARKABLY YOU, written by Pat Zietlow Miller and illustrated Barton from HarperCollins, was SO lovely! Kudo’s on a ‘remarkable’ book!
Nina Mata – SHE’S GOT THIS! illustrated by Mata, written by Laurie Hernandez from HC – 8th on the New York Times Best Seller List! Such a strong girl story -They GOT this! 😉
Priscilla Burris – The cover reveal for FEAR THE BUNNY by Richard T. Morris and illustrated by our Priscilla Burris included this wonderful line – “ this book might ‘cute you to death’ but it’s faultless and funny!!” BEAT THAT!! and it comes out 2/5 from Simon & Schuster! GET THAT!
Nicole Tadgell – had to mention Booklist gave raves end of last year to FOLLOW ME DOWN TO NICODEMUS TOWN illustrated by Tadgell and from Albert Whitman. Another great story about something most of us knew nothing about!
I’ve missed a lot I’m sure, but so proud of our agency artists!! Will try to be better with this, but our Facebook Page has loads too! Do follow us there as well…..www.catagencyinc.com
