EBYR All Over: September 18, 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
- Congrats to Jerry W. and Twila C., the winners of our Just Like I Wanted giveaway!
- If you missed out on this giveaway, don’t fret: we’re still giving away 10 copies of Fur, Fins, and Feathers by Cassandre Maxwell through TeachingBooks.net! Click here to find out how to enter.
Two books written by Karen Lynn Williams and Khadra Mohammed were featured in a Classroom Bookshelf list of books about children as refugees. My Name Is Sangoel (illustrated by Catherine Stock) and Four Feet, Two Sandals (illustrated by Doug Chayka) were both identified as good resources for discussing the current refugee crisis with children.
- Booksource Banter featured Red by Jan De Kinder in an article about books that stand up to bullying. The “sparse text perfectly pairs with the graphic illustrations,” creating a book that “illustrates how standing together can make a big difference.”
- Fur, Fins, and Feathers by Cassandre Maxwell was reviewed by Booklist (paywall).
- Speaking of Fur, Fins, and Feathers, have you seen the book’s dazzling new trailer?
- If you love those illustrations as much as we do, you should definitely check out author/illustrator Cassandre Maxwell’s re-designed website, cassandremaxwell.net, which beautifully showcases her signature style.
- Laura Watkinson, the much-lauded translator of many Batchelder-winning titles, gave yet another great interview, this one on the official SCBWI blog.
