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.

Hooray! Doreen Cronin is fantastic! Hope you share your work here...

I just saw this news in PW, and I can't wait for this book! You are one of my top 5 fave illustrators, so I will be pushing this book like crazy (I'm a children's librarian). (Not that it will need pushing by me....) I just can't get enough of that title! Hilarious. You and Doreen Cronin seem like the perfect pair to handle these characters.

Hi Constantina - Thanks, me too!

Hi Tanya - I will definitely share the drawings when I can.

Hi Holly, Thank you! I appreciate the support and I agree, I think that drawing the characters will be as fun as the title suggests.
