Picture books with murder pls. I like it when animals eat other animals. But it can be people too. 👹 #mswl
What picture books stuck w you that explore death/grief? I’m interested in this topic as both a reader adding to my library and an editor building my #mswl. They definitely exist but can be harder to find (& there should be more!) Here’s a thread of some I love. Please add to it!
Alison L. Morris @AlisonLMorrisJessica Love is my pick #14 for #kidlitwomen #womeninillustration. Her award-worthy debut picture book Julián is a Mermaid is a joyful, tender, luminous celebration of identity, gender nonconformity, body positivity, & self-love, coming in May. It's beautiful and unforgettable! pic.twitter.com/iGuTWEsIXl
I am excited out of my mind for this book. CAN’T WAIT to get my hands on a copy and am already prepared to add it to my #mswl from everything I’ve seen and heard. 😍🧜🏾♂️💚✨
