"Vivid and accessible: an illuminating portrait of one of nature's most iconic birds." —Kirkus Reviews
"Frustrated expectations have seldom been so funny; Barton’s misdirections are beautifully timed, and McCloskey’s digitally enhanced pencil-and-watercolor drawings are bright and exuberant." - PW, STARRED
We’ve been doing a lot of packaging projects with Catbird Agency’s fantastic illustrators, and I’m so pleased at how this one played out! Jean Reidy and Joey Chou, who worked on THE SNOW IS DEEPER THAN MY BOOTS ARE HIGH and the forthcoming GROUP HUG together, are being reunited with WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN A BOOK ABOUT YOU? Harper snagged it and two additional books in an exciting auction earlier this year, and they are so eager, they’re planning to publish this in spring 2021! And esteemed editor Antonia Markiet is helming, with Megan Ilnitzki assisting, to make this whole thing even more outstanding.
Can’t WAIT to see this one on shelves! Congratulations, Jean!
