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 most recent books are Shy and This House, Once . Coming in April, 2019: CARL and the meaning of life .

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.

Every year on August 10th, I lurk on Twitter as teachers and other readers post about "ten books they can't live without." An impossible task, you say? Um, yes. But if we are "allowed" to choose ten within a theme—well, then we can talk—

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!
