Once upon a time, I was an architect. But now I'd much rather build worlds in books — picture books like Scribble , Blue Chicken , The Story of Fish & Snail , and By Mouse & Frog . My next book, Shy, will be published by Viking on September 27, 2016.

I love reading books; I hate rating them! Let's just say that if I didn't like a book, it isn't here at all.

Someone extremely shy finds a friend...

Freedman’s fine pencil lines, graceful animals, superb compositions, and spare text are virtuosic, but the backgrounds are the soul of Shy’s tale: breathtaking watercolor washes blend hues softly from one section of the natural color spectrum to another, opaquely connoting desert, mountains, skies, dawn, and nig...

Deborah I'm glad you found me too — I am a shameless book nerd and love to connect with others who like to book-talk, especially about children's books!
