I like you 2015....

It's the start of a new year and things are of to a good start. First, the second review is in for KNIT TOGETHER, and it's a good one!

" PreS-K–A little girl loves drawing and her mom. Her mom loves knitting and her daughter. When learning to knit proves too difficult for the child, the two discover a way to spend time together doing what they enjoy. In the end, they work collaboratively to create a knitted blanket based on the little girl’s design. Detailed, colorful illustrations carry the simple one-to-three sentences on each page. This picture book makes a welcome addition to any collection and will find a special niche among knitting mothers.–Betsy Davison, Cortland Free Library, NY "

Second, I'll honored to be showing with Christian Robinson at La Casa Azul Bookstore in Harlem starting in a few weeks. Here's a link: http://www.lacasaazulbookstore.com/current-exhibit.html

Lastly, I'm was invited to be member of PEN America. I'm still pinching myself that I'm considered a writer. Yay, 2015!

First Review for Knit Together!

I just got my first review for Knit Together (March 24, 2014) from Kirkus and it's delightful! Here are  a few highlights:

Kirkus writes “The bespectacled mother, her daughter and a little dog are colorful characters rendered with a bit of digital help in a mix of gouache, colored pencil, ink and collage against a white background. Swirls of yarn, a typeface that resembles handwriting and smiling cartoon faces add up to a lively and enjoyable story about sharing hobbies and good times. . . . A warm family story.”
