PAX AND BLUE in The New York Times Book Review

I am absolutely delighted that The New York Times Book Review featured my debut picture book, Pax and Blue! The review calls it a "sprightly debut," and says its "spare pages have a friendly, retro look that calls to mind Syd Hoff’s welcoming urban spaces..."  SYD HOFF, you guys. I am floored!! I did study a lot of Syd Hoff while working on this book, as well as one of my favorites by Bernard Waber, Lyle, Lyle Crocodile.

Even better was that I got to share the print edition with my boys on Mother's Day.
