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

  • Congrats to Janet M., Karen S., and Wendy B., the winners of our May giveaway! They’ll each receive a copy of Ben and the Emancipation Proclamation signed by illustrator and Coretta Scott King medalist Floyd Cooper.

  • Night Guard, the new collection of poems written by Synne Lea and illustrated by Stian Hole, earned a starred review from Booklist! “By turns enchanting, unsettling, and profound,” writes reviewer Briana Shemroske, “this nonlinear, free-verse meditation, first published in Norway, unfolds much a like a dream. . . . Unusual and thought-provoking for readers of all ages, this collection glows.”
