Anastasia Higginbotham has a picture book series, called Ordinary Terrible Things, from the Feminist Press that just came to my attention. I read DEATH IS STUPID, which came out last year, and then TELL ME ABOUT SEX, GRANDMA (coming in April), which addresses sex in a frank and remarkable way for young readers. Those are on my mind at Kirkus today -- and next week at 7-Imp I'll have some more art from both books.

This is a belated post, as it fell through the cracks during the holidays, but at 7-Imp today I have art from Alessandro Sanna, Martin Brown, and Kaya Doi: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4244.

At 7-Imp today, it's Jonah and Jeanette Winter's THE SECRET PROJECT, coming in early February. It's a picture book for young children about the team of people who worked under cover to bring the world the atomic bomb, and I don't think I've ever seen such a striking and powerful use of an utterly black double page spread -- http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4239.

In my Kirkus column today: Patricia McKissack's splendid (and joyous) work of scholarship, a collection of games, songs, and stories from an African American Childhood.

Just exactly how much pressure did Greg Pizzoli feel when illustrating a never-before-seen manuscript from Margaret Wise Brown? We discuss that at Kirkus today, and I learn what Rubylith is.

I’ve got an interview over at Kirkus today with Ruby Shamir and Matt Faulkner, the author and illustrator of WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT FIRST LADIES, released this month by Philomel. We talk about leaving the book’s final page empty in galleys until the election results came in (sniff), what surprising things they learned in their research, and much more. (And I'll have more art from the book at 7-Imp next week.) -- https://www.kirkusreviews.com/features/ladies-first-ruby-shamir-and-matt-faulkner/

At Kirkus today, besides proving what a bad poet I am, I write about Nikki Grimes' ONE LAST WORD: WISDOM FROM THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE, which is a moving, timely collection in which Grimes shares a selection of poems from celebrated Harlem Renaissance poets and uses them as a launching pad for her own original poems, using the Golden Shovel form.

I'm following up my chat from last week with Greg Pizzoli with some more process images at 7-Imp from his newest book, Margaret Wise Brown's NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST. Pictured here is when he experimented with cut paper and Rubylith, two techniques he ended up ditching for the final book, but hey, I love to read about process: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4240.

It may be 2017, but let's book back at a Spring 2016 title, Anne Hunter's CRICKET SONG. She visits 7-Imp to share images and talk about what's next for her: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4238.

At 7-Imp today, I've got a bit of art from Emily Jenkins's A GREYHOUND, A GROUNDHOG, illustrated by Chris Appelhans, and Steve Light visits to share art and the DVD Director's Cut (preliminary sketches, storylines that never made it in the book, etc.) from LUCKY LAZLO: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=4236.
