dear diary, jan 5, 1990


(Read earlier illustrated diary entries here.)

Newsy news: Alex Fitch of Panel Borders interviews Alex Milway (The Mousehunter trilogy, the yeti's The Mythical 9th Division books and John Dunning (Salem Brownstone). Click to listen to it here!

Other interesting tidbit about Alex Milway, he's announced that he's going to kick off another year of getting ready for the Crystal Palace Children's Book Festival, for Sat, Oct 23rd! But he and Katie have a new baby, so he's going to need help from everyone... which is lucky for us, because this year's festival is going to feature COMICS!

Last night I had a great time reading Raina Telgemeier's book Smile, and I wrote a review, posted on Write Away. Have a peek! (And leave a comment on Write Away if you fancy.)

Over on the FPI blog, you can look at the amazing work of Kate Brown as she walks us step by step through making the artwork for her upcoming book Spider Moon.

Awhile ago on LiveJournal I friended author Kate Messner (kmessner), and last night spotted an interesting lead into her entry about graphic novels:
A parent of one of our middle school students approached me at my daughter's ballet class a while back.
“I was hoping I might be able to talk to you about my son,” he said, shaking his head and wringing his hands in a way that led me to believe the young man must be a drug addict or serial shoplifter.  “He’s constantly reading graphic novels.  What should I do?”
