"This story is not just about a stuttering boy who studied jaguars, but about all children who feel sad, abused, or misunderstood by the world at large ...." That's Dr. Alan Rabinowitz (pictured here), the president and CEO of Panthera, a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting the world's wildcat species. He's written a beautiful story---A BOY AND A JAGUAR, illustrated by Catia Chen---that tells the story of his boyhood and how talking to animals (particularly, jaguars) helped him overcome a terrible stutter. It's a fascinating story, and I talk to him at Kirkus today. Next week at 7-Imp, I'll follow up with some art from the book: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/features/promise-promise/.

I'll be doing story time at Parnassus Books this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Bring your children to me! I'll try to have Easter stories. How 'bout that? Attached is a photo of my brother, Steve Walker, when he was little. It has nothing to do with story time, but this is proof of how you flat-out rocked an Easter outfit in the early '70s.

Author-illustrator Julie Fortenberry visits 7-Imp today. Those of you familiar with Kar-Ben Publishing (each year they publish new children’s books with Jewish content) will especially recognize Julie's work. Pictured here is an illustration from last year's Sadie’s Almost Marvelous Menorah. Her newest book from Alazar Press is her debut as both author and illustrator. -- http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3379.

This morning over at Kirkus, I write about a small handful of new picture books that caught my eye for one reason or another, including the one pictured here. Next week at 7-Imp, I'll try to have art from each book. -- https://www.kirkusreviews.com/features/mermaids-cats-and-mama-birds-oh-my/.

Illustrator Jeremy Holmes visits me for breakfast and shares lots of art, including this new piece pictured here -- and, in honor of National Poetry Month, lots of sketches and art from J. Patrick Lewis's and Douglas Florian's POEM-MOBILES, which he illustrated: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3373.

I have a whole heapin' bunch of picture book art at 7-Imp today as a follow-up to something I wrote last week. It's art from: Renato Alarcão (you gotta see the ocean spread -- the light! O, the light!); K.G. Campbell (so beautiful, these illustrations); Emily Gravett, who also shares some early thumbnails (pictured here) and rejected cats; and lots of art from Steve Jenkins. (The Rejected Cats needs to be my next polka band name. Okay, there was never a first polka band.) It's all here: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3381.

Candlewick has made a press release (an updated one, since the book was pushed back a bit) for WILD THINGS, my upcoming book with Elizabeth Bird and the late Peter D. Sieruta. I'm not sure how to do this publicity stuff, so I hope it's not annoyingly early to share, but there's a fun Q & A involved: http://blaine.org/jules/Wild_Things_PressRelease-pages%20(1).pdf.

Since I reviewed Elizabeth Bluemle's TAP TAP BOOM BOOM, illustrated by G. Brian Karas, for BookPage, I am following it up at my site today with a link to the review; some art from the book; and a chat with Elizabeth. She talks about being a bookseller (she co-owns the Flying Pig Bookstore in Vermont), TAP TAP and Brian's wonderful illustrations, what she calls her World Full of Color diversity database for children's books, and what she's reading now: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3380.
