My Top Five Most Popular Posts of 2013

Just peeking in to say hello and cheers and be careful where you aim the champagne bottle this week! Thanks for hanging out here in 2013, and I can’t wait to meet you all back here in 2014.

In case you missed any of these, my top five (in page views!) posts of 2013:

  • Sleep Like A Tiger by Mary Logue and Pamela Zagarenski (A dark horse but deserved Caldecott Honor last year. It’s transporting.)
  • Hide & Eek! by hat-trick design and Rebecca Sutherland (A flashlight and a dark room and innovative storytelling.)

breakerAnd one last but-you-gotta-see-this-before-you-go:

I’ve loved following this story of a dark and twisty app for older readers. The Jörgits is a striking tale of aliens and just what in the world is going on here on our planet. Anders Sandell and his crew are doing fascinating work. You can find out more on their Kickstarter page, which has already been funded but is still beautiful and compelling.


And if you still need your picture book fix, here are some recent favorites over on Design Mom: The Day the Crayons Quit, No Fits, Nilson, and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild.

Phew! What a great year to blab all over the place about picture books.

Don’t forget that The Mischievians giveaway is open through tonight! Be safe and happy and curl up with something fantastic this holiday season. Thanks again, a million times, for reading with me here. I’m thankful for you!
