EBYR All Over News from EBYR

EBYR All Over: July 10, 2015

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

  • Animal-BeautyAnimal Beauty was reviewed by Publishers Weekly. “Norwegian writer Roskifte trains a laser eye,” says the reviewer, “on the way the fashion industry manipulates consumers—a theme more often reserved for older readers, but dealt with effectively here, aided by Eirheim’s able translation.” The fashion conundrums the animals create for themselves are “credible and comic,” ultimately making the book a successful “modern fable.”
  • The Right Word was highlighted as a good “word-loving book” to help kids improve writing and grammar skills in an article on ReadBrightly.com.
  • Jen Bryant was congratulated by the Philadelphia Inquirer for her Sibert Medal — on the same page as news about Ben Affleck and Donald Trump, so clearly she’s famous!
  • A New York Times article identified the real man behind the actual red wheelbarrow in William Carlos Williams’s famous poem — a poet and a poem beautifully brought to life, of course, in the Caldecott Honor-winning book A River of Words by Jen Bryant and illustrated by Melissa Sweet.
