Ashley Congdon @AshleyCCongdon@jamerrson What themes, topics, styles, etc. excite you right now for picture books? #askagent
Is it fair to say everything? If I had to choose, non-fiction is most exciting to me right now, and I’m especially looking for some climate/environment related stuff. But I always love funny pbs. #MSWL
I've been on a #horror kick and would love some more in my inbox. I tend to gravitate towards psychological horror, or ghost stories. #MSWL

I'd love to find two types of #middlegrade fiction: books ala Jason Reynolds and Margaret Finnegan's upcoming WE COULD BE HEROES. #mg
and books that make me laugh out loud, like Aaron Blabey, and fan favorites Wimpy Kid, Dog Man. #MSWL
