Ok, I keep putting blogging off.  Blog off.  Blog on.
On Linden Square is out!  Go buy one!

the...neighbors interact eating latkes and tacos with cider, enjoying music, and dancing by candlelight. Sullivan’s friendly storytelling is accompanied by pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations that are reminiscent of Quentin Blake’s style.

I thought it might be interesting to show the evolution of a picture book.

It all started with a snowstorm in Brookline almost 20 years ago, which lead to a snow sculpture, which lead to a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
