Picture books

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Aug 6

So, time for another #MSWL, in the run-up to tomorrow's #askUpstart session. HUMOR, people! I love books that make me laugh, in every category; PB, CB, MG, YA. Here's a couple reasons why:

Guys I just really love pigeons ok? In fact, a picture book about pigeons would definitely be on my #MSWL

As someone with a sister with Down Syndrome, I'd LOVE a picture book about relationships between typical siblings and siblings with disabilities. #MSWL

We need to do right by this planet. Would absolutely love a picture book about the Amazon that sheds light on how desperately we need to care for our natural resources and marginalized societies. #MSWL

👆🏻I'd also love younger PBs for the 1-3 set: rhythmic, lyrical, bed-time appropriate books for non-verbal kids. For the older PBs, something as smart as THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK is my holy grail. #mswl

Okee dokee—the time has come to reopen to queries. (Hooray!) Since round numbers are nice, let’s say I’ll reopen on August 1st! Here's some stuff that I'd especially be excited to see in my inbox. #mswl

Picture books from author/illustrators (correct): modern art styles, whimsical-with-heart stories, light humor, and simple prose. Would love books that comp to MAX THE BRAVE, WE FOUND A HAT, and Emma Dodd. +100 for women and POC author/illustrators. #mswl #pb #Illustrator

A Lizzie Magie picture book would be cool! I had no idea who she was until about thirty seconds ago. #MSWL

Didn’t get the lovely submission I wanted, but it just means my heart is open to more picture books about activism, compassion, and self-esteem! #MSWL

At the end of the day, I am looking strong writers who can tell engaging KID friendly stories. #MSWL
