Picture books

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.

Dogger by Shirley Hughes, #TheNightGardener by The Fan Brothers, #NotQuiteNarwhal by Jessie Sima—just a handful of picture books that I wish I had acquired. Send me your charming, timeless #PB projects, please! #MSWL

I'm a big fan of @kaysarahsera. 😊 Definitely on the lookout for #PB narratives in verse with a strong voice and an emotional impact. #MSWL

It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

#MSWL immigrant stories across the board in PB, MG, YA.

Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!

My #MSWL isn't live yet, but if your #PB is cozy or curious or magical or mysterious or quirky or wry or tumbling with nature, send it to me!

Or if it is about sheep. I also like sheep.

Forever and always looking for stories that have nerdy, science-driven characters, especially if it is written by a scientist! #PB #MG #YA #scicomm #MSWL

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · 12 Sep 2018

Eager to find a smart and unique fiction or nonfiction #PB or #graphicnovel that discusses the importance of taking care of the environment and our oceans. #MSWL

Other wishes include kids nonfiction for any age. Also, picture books that are quirky/different and would make good board books #MSWL

Charlotte Wenger @WilbursBF_Char · 12 Sep 2018

⚡I was inspired by my recent visit to the @museumofscience! Would love to find a narrative nonfiction #PB about lightning, storms, and/or electricity! ⚡ #MSWL

In picture books, I'm always hunting for that perfect story that's never been done before but is also fully kid relatable #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 12 Sep 2018

For picture books: I want something funny, great to read out loud, and perhaps a bit surreal--like Dragons Love Tacos meets Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. #MSWL

Charlotte Wenger @WilbursBF_Char · 12 Sep 2018

I want a #PB that makes me laugh out loud! A story with sharp, clever text and room for the art to add humor. I love an unexpected ending! #MSWL

I'd love to see more non-fiction in all young reader categories: picture books, MG, YA, heavily illustrated and graphic projects. #MSWL

Brent Taylor @btaylorbooks · 12 Sep 2018

Top of my #MSWL is a literary middle grade mystery with high stakes, middle grade and YA graphic novels, author-illustrated picture books, a YA novel told in reverse chronological order.
