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
- The Dog That Nino Didn’t Have received another high-profile review this week. Nicole Lamy, writing for The Boston Globe, says Nino is “moving and unexpectedly beautiful.” Its voice and its mood are agile and subtle, and even though a real dog does eventually enter the story, challenging Nino’s imaginary visions of a canine companion, “this is not a story about the triumph of the real over the imagined. Nino’s dream life of animals swells in the final turn, cracking open his world and remaining true to the book’s fantastic heart.”
Little Big by Jonathan Bentley was featured by The Hiding Spot in a review of new and notable picture books. Bentley’s illustrations are “phenomenal,” says the review. “Exploring [his]spreads is truly a joy.”
- Fur, Fins, and Feathers by Cassandre Maxwell was reviewed on the Waking Brain Cells blog. The review says the book is a “captivating biography” and its cut-paper art “has an old-fashioned feel that beautifully conveys the 19th century time period.”
- Chris Barton and Don Tate, the author-illustrator team that created The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch, will give a reading tomorrow at 3:30 at the Texas Book Festival.
