Interview today on Roxie Hanna’s site

Hi everyone,

I received nice news about my most recent picture book at Random. A MONSTER IS COMING! was released in 2011 and has been named to the annual Chicago Public Library’s Best of the Best list of titles of books published last year. MONSTER is in plenty of good company so I’m glad to be on the list. This was illustrated by Hans Wilhelm. It’s our second collaboration, the first being WAKE UP, SUN! That one came out in 1986 and is still going strong. Last year it passed the 1,000,000 mark in copies sold. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for something like that with our new effort!

To see all the titles in each of several categories, here’s the link.  

Roxie Hanna sent me three questions for the basis of an interview, just three. But boy did they get me wound up! My responses took quite a while to complete but they reflect some of my best soul searching and advice and I hope you will visit her site to see the results and leave your thoughts. My thanks to Roxie for handling the interview so beautifully. Here’s the link. <a .
