I’d love to work with a PB author/illustrator who uses paint/texture the way Alena Shymchonak does in her art! #MSWL

If it was somehow possible for an author/illustrator to do a spooky-yet-entirely-kid-friendly picture book about russalka, I would die of happiness. #creepymermaids #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.
