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.
