There have been a handful of picture books of late that look at characters who are sad and the friends that try to help them, books in many ways about emotional intelligence. Michael Ian Black's and Debbie Ridpath Ohi's I'M SAD is one, and I write about it at Kirkus today.

Art at 7-Imp today from Vera Brosgol's BE PREPARED, including pitch art (one is pictured left), some early camp sketches, and final art (pictured right). She also shares some process images of how she broke the book's plot down into work-able portions -- http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4653

I may ramble just a bit in my Kirkus column today about something that was on my mind all week — the pitfalls of treating reading as sacred, as well as looking too hard for lessons in children's books. (This reminds me of one of my favorite Meet the Author features at BookPage, where Sergio Ruzzier was asked: "What message would you like to send to young readers?" And Sergio responded: "Beware of messages." -- https://bookpage.com/meet/17399-meet-sergio-ruzzier#.WxqaxIpKiUk). Anyway. Here's to mischief in children's books.
