EBYR All Over: February 19, 2016

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 EBYR & Elsewhere

Night Guard
  • Congrats to Kristi V., Ben V., and Stacy D., winners of our One Big Family giveaway!
  • Night Guard by Synne Lea and illustrated by Stian Hole was reviewed by Kirkus. The review praised Hole’s “stunning, surrealistic artwork,” which “command lingering, from the fanciful cover and dreamlike endpapers to the full-page interior art.” The text “similarly invites repeated reading.”
  • Kirkus also reviewed Our Father, noting its fascinating artwork and calling it an “appealing interpretation” of the Lord’s Prayer for children.
  • Samira and the Skeletons by Camilla Kuhn earned a starred review from Smithsonian BookDragon!
  • Jen Bryant, author of The Right Word, visited the San Antonio Central Library this week to talk about writing, research, and picture book biographies.
