The Princess and the Pony comes out really soon, and we are all very excited! Would you like to know more about the book, and read some reviews? Well I made this little site called Beatontown for picture book business, where you can see all that! It's nothing fancy, not yet anyway, but I wanted a place kids could look through if they wanted. Hark! is my baby, but it has some content that's not for real babies.

Read an interview with me over at The Mary Sue where we get into the new books, and writing for kids vs. writing for adults!

I've been working on a new picture book, you'll be seeing it in 2016. And we just sent Step Aside Pops to the printers! It's a big time for Drawn and Quarterly, my comics publishers. They turned 25 this year! To celebrate, there is a giant book. Look at this giant book. It's a grand history of a grand publisher, I've been reading it for days. And I'm thrilled, beyond thrilled to tell you that the essay about my work was written by none other than Margaret Atwood. What a charmed life I must be leading, I said to myself, the day I found that out.
