If there's one word I use most frequently to describe Eric Pinder's picture books, it has to be: "pitch perfect." Eric is a master of the warm, cuddle-up-and-read narrative voice, and an ideal example of this is his most recent masterwork, THE PERFECT PILLOW.
This picture book text tells the story of Brody, a youngster who is having a terrible time trying to get to sleep in his new, big bed. And so, finding the obvious solution, Brody crawls out the window in search of a more comfortable nighttime spot. (We've all done this ourselves... right?) Needless to say, adventures ensue.
Today I'm happy to share the exciting news that THE PERFECT PILLOW has found a publishing home! It was acquired by Kevin Lewis at Disney-Hyperion, and great plans are already a-brewing for some gorgeous accompanying illustrations.
Huge congratulations, Eric!
