Last stop on the blog tour! Inkygirl!
I am such a fan of Debbie Ridpath Ohi--as a picture book creator and as a human.
I first became aware of Debbie with I'M BORED which she illustrated, written by Michael Ian Black. The story is hilarious and she killed me with her illustrations of a bored and unimpressed potato.
THEN, Debbie was tapped to illustrate the new covers for Judy Blume novels. And instead of saying something like, "I'm so honored to announce..." She shared this:
So, we all got to freak out along with her freaking out about illustrating Judy freakin' Blume covers!
As you can see, I'm a fan.
Thanks Debbie, for taking the time to ask about ELLA AND PENGUIN STICK TOGETHER and help me spread the word about this book. And thanks for all you do for the whole children's literature community by sharing your experiences, insights and tips for our benefit.
