An essay collection I <3 is described as "aggressively colloquial & achingly poetic." That's what I'm looking for in all novels I edit #MSWL

#MSWL #picturebook If you're ever looking for me, I'm probably on 5th & 17th hanging out with Loubie.…~

Always intrigued by the idea of "false friends" when talking about language. There *must* be a #bilingual #picturebook idea in there...#MSWL

Tired of ch bk & MG subs where MC hates his/her younger sib. Where's the love? More interested in sibs teaming up to cause trouble. #MSWL
