As of this morning, Too Much Glue (written by Jason Lefebvre, illustrated by Zac Retz) was listed as the second “hottest” new release on Amazon in the Children’s Literature category!
This pretty much sums up how we feel about it:
“…debut illustrator Retz’s artwork is created digitally, but there’s a sculptural quality to it that almost suggests he could be using glue as a medium, too…. First-time author LeFebvre presents a rowdy tale about the disruptive forms that creativity can take.” — Publishers Weekly
Arrrr You Ready for Adventure? May 21, 2012Posted by flashlightblog in Book Launchings, Book News, Pirates.

Sailing into a store near you: our newest book, Victricia Malicia: Book-Loving Buccaneer, written by Carrie L. Clickard and illustrated by Mark Meyers.
Publishers Weekly says:
Clickard takes rhyme and meter seriously, achieving, at her best, a Gilbert and Sullivan–like patter…. Meyers… provides lots of pirate detail and even an ironic moment or two…. Rollicking, sea-chantey verse and slapstick humor make this a promising readaloud.
Although Victricia Malicia Calamity Barrett was born on her family’s pirate ship, this mild-mannered, book-loving girl is sick of the sea:
“I gag when my lunch is Spaghetti Tentacular,
hate when my sisters speak pirate vernacular,
want a new pet that’s not scaly or spiny,
and wish I could keep my books somewhere less briny!”
To find out more about Victricia’s seafaring adventure, her mishaps on board, and her encounter with a terrifying sea serpent, see the PDF preview of Victricia Malicia.
