#MSWL if someone would like to write a picture book biography about all the marvelous, kind, beautiful things Robin Williams did with his brilliant and complex life, I would like to be first in line to see it!

I want to believe that stories can change hearts. Iโ€™m actively seeking stories about immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized, so please send me your graphic novels, your picture books, your YA, your MG! Love and empathy and awareness can be radical. #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

Didnโ€™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

Dream picture book concept for my #MSWL : a young witch in training explores her forest and uses the science found in nature to help tend to the world around her.

I dream of a picture book that looks and reads like a Joanna Newsom song #MSWL

Friendly reminder that picture books, MG, or YA novels about Brasilian culture or protagonists are at the top of my #MSWL ! Very hype to hear that @fsgbooks is publishing O sol na Cabeรงa by Geovani Martins!

Listening to @caetanoveloso on the way to work makes me want to work on a picture book biography of him so badly. #MSWL #LatinX #MusicaBrasileiro

For my 1st #mswl , Iโ€™m starting strong with any picture book that involves capybaras and their ability to befriend all kinds of critters.
