When I spoke at the Cambridge Public Library, two literary superstars turned up. Amy Walrod and Timothy Basil Ering. They are both good pals whose work I admire very deeply. And when I came across their books for the first time years ago, I stopped dead in my tracks both times. That to me is the sign of a good picture book, I could do nothing more but ogle over the beautiful illustrations.
And while I still found no word of Little Joe Cook's whereabouts, when Daryl Mark librarian-super-srtar and I sat down for a bite to eat, his music played on the cafe's stereo.
Enjoy these pics of my mini-Boston tour.
This is how thorough Pat Keough was in her interview. Post-it notes throughout all of my books. I walked away knowing more about my work than I did going in!
