Have I mentioned that I am a HUGE fan of Philip and Erin Stead? And of Julie Fogliano? Why yes I have, here:
Which is why I am biting-my-nails anxious to get my copy of if you want to see a whale. Julie Fogliano and Erin Stead together again (the team that brought us and then it’s spring), and I just can’t wait.
Another new, albeit different type of book that I am also so excited about it the latest Fancy Nancy, which came out on April 23rd. I haven’t written about Fancy Nancy yet because by the time I started this blog we had read Fancy Nancy, Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy, Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet and Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas so many times that we needed a break…similar to the kind of break we take when we have peanut butter and jelly for lunch too many days in a row. We don’t stop eating it because we don’t like it; we just need to switch to turkey and cheese or English muffin pizzas for awhile. But with a new Fancy Nancy I’m sure we’ll also return to all our old favorites, and I’ll dedicate an entire post to why we love them, then.
In the meantime, I have to get my hands on these books. I’m jealous if you get to them first.
