#MSWL highlights for #November🍂: picture book kin of Nora and Andrew Lang, George MacDonald, and Ruth Manning-Sanders

A lyrical #OwnVoices PB about a house blessing (or cleansing) ceremony/ritual. There are so many beautiful traditions out there from different cultural/religious backgrounds. #MSWL

Since it's #NationalCatDay, this is the perfect day to tweet that I NEED a PB about a cat. (Preferably from an author/illustrator.)

P.S. My cat Maple is sitting on my lap as I type this and she approves this #MSWL item.

Looking at my inbox, wishing it had a fun picture book centering an Asian child. And some without gender roles/stereotypes. And maybe one with ballet. Just thinking in two minutes before a meeting. #mswl

#MSWL I want a PB, MG, or YA novel about Poe, Dickens, or the Industrial Revolution Era. A graphic novel would be epic! #thatsgenius #novel #PB #MG #YA Send the synopsis and first three chapters, of this only, to molly[@]goldenwheatliterary[.]com

Lastly, as a PB writer... PBs! I have a stupid sense of humor so anything funny like Elise Parsley or Jason Carter Eaton. One of my favorites is RL Stine’s LITTLE SHOP OF MONSTERS. #MSWL

#MSWL a picture book about an endearing mosquito that doesn’t understand why everyone is always swatting it. I’m being dead serious who is writing this for me.

Also in the mood for a really cozy, fallish or wintry woodland picture books. Clearly, I've leaned into the changing seasons even thought it's still 65 degrees outside in Seattle! #mswl

It's fall, I'm in the mood for something spooky/eerie. PB and MG, please! #mswl

Nonfiction kid lit writers! We’ve seen a ton of PB biographies acquired over the last year or so—the market is ready and open to fresh takes on PB nonfiction. Think outside the biography box! And after you do—send me your stuff :) #MSWL

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.
