There’s a new blog on the scene, Philip Nel’s Nine Kinds of Pie. Phil’s a children’s lit academic — hold on, don’t go away, he’s cool — with a wonderful range of tastes and interests. He got a lot of attention for his Dr. Seuss work, but he’s done loads of other neat stuff too.
Phil’s latest post is “Too Bad His Duck Is So Crazy” featuring the witty and needs-to-be-better-known Tim Egan. Like Phil I had always enjoyed his picture books, but really fell in love with him when I encountered the first of the Dodsworth Adventure series; these are early readers featuring the travels of a proper mouse Dodsworth and … that duck.
More like this one, Phil!
