Completely happy Wednesday! I am SUPER, SUPER, SUPER excited to rejoice books with Karina Yan Glaser right this moment. She got here by to speak The Vanderbeekers on the street‘s cowl, cats, A duet for house, Anderson’s Bookshop, Broadway and extra. I wrote the phrases in purple, and Karina wrote the phrases black† Thanks, Karina!
Katya Longhi’s cowl illustration and David Hastings’ cowl design for The Vanderbeekers on the street is a lot enjoyable! That is the primary time the Vanderbeekers have left New York Metropolis on this guide sequence, and I believe the duvet captures the sense of anticipation and chaos surrounding a significant street journey. That is Katya’s fourth Vanderbeekers cowl and I really like her work and am so grateful that she continues for example the covers for this sequence. I hope at some point I can go to her in Italy!
The Vanderbeekers on the street tells the story of the Vanderbeekers who fulfilled their hopes for an enormous fortieth anniversary for his or her father. Within the earlier guide within the sequence (The Vanderbeekers Make a Want), the Vanderbeekers are dissatisfied when their plans for an enormous shock birthday celebration for his or her father are canceled when he has to go away city on the final minute. In The Vanderbeekers on the Street, the children (plus their mother, Mr. Beiderman, and Orlando) took off in a van to choose up Papa in Indiana and head to California, imitating a street journey Papa’s father had deliberate, however Papa and his father was by no means allowed to go on. 9 individuals in a van all the way in which to California and again – what may go mistaken?
Cats and a canine are additionally on this guide! Simply because the Vanderbeekers go away their Harlem brownstone doesn’t suggest there is not animal struggling within the story. They convey Franz, Hyacinth’s Bassett Hound, Laney’s cat Tuxedo, and two rescued cats to Aunt Penny’s in Monterey. And possibly one other animal customer will come alongside the way in which. Once more…what may go mistaken?
A duet for house is a self-contained middle-class guide I wrote that got here out final April. It was impressed by my work in shelters for households who have been homeless in New York Metropolis, and the story is instructed in two voices. June simply enters the shelter for the primary time and Tyrell has been there for over three years. Though their first assembly is a bit messy, they ultimately be taught to belief one another not solely with their lives, but additionally with their desires. This guide has been twenty years within the making!

Anderson’s Bookshop is probably the most stunning place with implausible employees who love books! Once I was there in April, I used to be greeted with probably the most wonderful shock: a signed and customized copy of It is a college by John Schu and illustrated by Veronica Miller Jamieson. I simply love that guide! One other factor I really like about Anderson’s is the great group of educators and librarians who attend occasions there. Once I do an occasion at Anderson’s I really feel surrounded by a lot assist and love! And I really like Anderson’s director of training, Lorie Barber. She is the very best!
