Happy Marvelous Middle Grade Monday! There have been some great new MG releases lately. Thank you to @simonkids @harperchildrens @disneybooks @penguinkids @randomhousekids for these recent arrivals. -
🍁
We’re looking forward to reading a few of these. Most all of these will be donated to my daughter’s new school. She’s been begging me to take books to her library, because β€œit’s not as fully stocked as her old one & needs new books kids want to read.” Kids at her previous school loved many of these titles / series. We’re taking these up in the next week or two so I won’t get a chance to read them all, but it’s more important to get these in the hands of their targeted reading audience than sit on my shelf & wait to be bed. However, we will have series spotlights coming soon! -

Some more details from the book. I gave a little nod to two towns on the north shore of Massachusetts. One was Haverhill-A former shoe mill town where I got my first library card-and one whose downtown streets and shops were such a memorable part of my childhood. The other is Newburyport, where I lived briefly as an adult. (locals will know The Grog notation on expense record) #MrBiddles #picturebook #lobster #map #massachusetts #haverhill #newburyport #thegrog #kidlit #kidlitart #tourism #masstourism #haverhillma #newburyportma #icecream #roadtrip #authorillustrator #details #touristattraction #library #harperchildrens

Detail from the endpapers of Mr. Biddles. One of my favorite things about making a picture book is injecting it with teeny details that mean little to anyone else but me. 43 was the number of my childhood home. I also did this in my first book-and will probably continue to as long as there is a residence in my books. Anyway, here is my character as a wee bambino... #MrBiddles #picturebook #creativeprocess #books #kidlit #kidlitart #illustration #childrensbooks #baby #detailsdetails #endpapers #bookmaking #authorillustrator #cat #character #harpercollinschildrens #diaperpin #vintage #harperchildrens

Detail from a page of Mr. Biddles... For this scene-where Mr. B meets Hobson's family, I channeled Harold Hecuba from Gilligans island. I always thought he was a funny character, with his plaid jackets and oversized black frames-played by Phil silvers of Sergeant Bilko fame. So there you have it. #1960s #tv #gilligansisland #haroldhecuba #movieproducer #harperchildrens #picturebookillustration #friendship #character #mrbiddles #picturebook #maine #coastal #handshake #process #inspiration #authorillustrator #cats #lobsters #childrensbooks #librarian

**GIVEAWAY** A boy. A cabin in the woods. A lost video game. An unexpected day of discovery.
.
This book is so beautiful it makes me tear up a bit. The boy's wonder and awe as he rediscovers the glory of the natural world is something I think we all want for our kids these days.
.
The illustrations are phenomenal, with the boy's orange raincoat acting as our spot of brightness throughout.
.
Small moments, alone and shared, make this story magical. I'm thrilled to be able to share a copy with you, courtesy of HarperCollins.
