Piano Drawings

This is a piano from the art/editorial department at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Books. It has crayon drawings by H.A. Rey the artist of Curious George. How lovely!

Boom, Snot, Twitty

Here's some news announced on Publishers Weekly this week:

 Cronin, Liwska Land at Viking Kids In a three-book (two for me) deal Tracy Gates, associate editorial director at Viking Children’s Books, acquired Caldecott Honor winner Doreen Cronin’s picture book Boom, Snot, Twitty, as well as its sequel. 
Boom, Snot, Twitty, about a bear, snail, and bird searching for a place to relax, will be illustrated by Renata Liwska (The Quiet Book), and it’s scheduled for 2014, with a sequel to follow in 2015. Holly McGhee at Pippin Properties brokered the deal. 

It is going to be fun working with the characters Boom, Snot, Twitty! I don't remember drawing many snails before now and of course I always like drawing bears and birds.
