Many thanks to reviewer Sarah Ellis for such a kind and thoughtful writeup of CITY CAT in the Jan./Feb. issue of The Horn Book~
Wishing you a BRIGHT and COLORFUL new year! xo~L
It was a total surprise to discover that CITY CAT had been reviewed in the New York Times a couple weeks ago... and fantastic review to boot! Here is a snippet:
My new book City Cat, written by the wonderful Kate Banks, is now finally out in the world!
One of my favorite booky events of the year is tomorrow evening! If you're in the NYC area, come out to the Jacob Javits Center for the 19th Annual Children's Book Art Silent Auction at BookExpo America!
Just found out that SPUNKY TELLS ALL is a nominee for the 2014Beverly Cleary Children’s Choice Award!! You can view the 7 books that were nominated right here. Hooray for Spunky!
I've just begun character studies for my next (3rd) book as author, Nana in the City, about a boy who travels to the city to visit his nana and needs a little convincing about why the city is a good place (for a nana) to live. I'm looking forward to jumping in to final art this spring!
