Welcome back to EBYR All Over, a Friday roundup of all the EBYR-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can gather in a given week.
News from Eerdmans & Elsewhere
- Crazy by Linda Vigen Phillips won the INDIEFAB gold for YA Fiction! The Big Book of Slumber also won an INDIEFAB Honorable Mention for Picture Books.
- Fur, Fins, and Feathers: Abraham Dee Bartlett and the Invention of the Modern Zoo was featured in the Nonfiction Detectives article about forthcoming nonfiction titles discovered at ALA.
- Roger Is Reading a Book was reviewed on the Child Reads World blog. The reviewer describes the book as “short and sweet” and notes just how many times his audience demanded it re-read. (Thanks, Betsy Bird, for recommending this book!)
- Jen Bryant, author of The Right Word and A River of Words, was profiled in an article on the MackinVia Connext blog. Bryant shares about her influences, her love of reading, and her methods for writing great children’s books: “Whenever I begin a new book, I feel as if I’m setting out on a great adventure. Much like a physical journey — say, a long sea voyage or hiking the Appalachian Trail — I begin with a few supplies (some basic reading on my subject, a few photos, and a timeline perhaps) and a LOT of curiosity.”
- The Legend of Saint Nicholas earned an Honorable Mention in the Catholic Press Association 2015 Book Awards.
