The Children’s Book Council is a wonderful online resource for those who publish, write, illustrate or simply love children’s books.
The best specialty children’s bookstore I know of is A Children’s Place Bookstore, here in Portland, Oregon. Visit them at 4807 NE Fremont St., Portland OR or call: 503-284-8294
friends who illustrate
Many thanks to SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) for creating the connections which made possible the publication of my first picture book, Lucky Boy.
To editor Ann Rider (Houghton Mifflin Co.), for giving me the lucky nod.
To editor Reka Simonsen (formerly with Henry Holt and Company, now Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), for hooking me up with some great writers whose work I have illustrated (Christine Graham and Wendy Orr).
i so admire
David Small for his lyrical line.
Calef Brown for his laugh-out-loud humor and color.
Alice Munro for being the best storyteller on the planet.
