Black All Around!, a children’s picture book that I illustrated, written by Patricia Hubbell, received a nice review from the February 2011 edition of the Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children’s media. Interesting thing is, the review came 7 years after publication. I ain’t complaining though, it’s totally cool. Here’s what they said:
“Graceful antidote to the still present ‘white is right’ mentality, the color black is celebrated in its fullest from a sleek black limousine to a shiny black beetle. A little girl is daydreaming in the moon glow with simple rhymes. Fun illustrations conjure up every beautiful black thing she can imagine until she drifts off to sleep. This was a Connecticut Book Award Finalist at first publication.”
Black All Around! has received some of the best reviews and comments of my career, I’m happy. Great end to a busy week.
