EBYR All Over: August 14, 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.
Fur, Fins, and Feathers: Abraham Dee Bartlett and the Invention of the Modern Zoo
By Cassandre Maxwell
News from Eerdmans & Elsewhere
- The Dog That Nino Didn’t Have (Edward van de Vendel, illus. Anton Van Hertbruggen) earned a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly: “Through playful negatives and sumptuous illustrations van de Vendel and Van Hertbruggen suggest that imagination can fill the void where melancholy and longing live, coexisting with realities beyond one’s control.”
Anton Van Hertbruggen’s illustrations for The Dog That Nino Didn’t Have have been selected to receive a Silver Medal at the Society of Illustrators “Original Art” exhibition. Other EBYR titles that will be featured at the annual exhibition are Animal Supermarket, I Am a Bear, and Red.
- The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch was the Library of Congress’s pick for the state of Mississippi on its annual “52 Great Reads” list of “books representing the literary heritage of the 50 states.”
- Congrats to Debra, Donna, and Jo Beth, who each won a copy of Jan De Kinder’s Red in our August giveaway!
