Little Elliot, BIG WINDOW, Part 2: Christmastime at Books of Wonder!

Christmas is upon us! Books of Wonder asked me to dress their window again, this time for the holidays (here’s what the first window looked like in August). Elliot and Mouse have been busy little elves, helping Santa wrap up presents! They might have read a few pages along the way, just to make sure everything was good.

There are lots of books by friends in the window:

A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
Hug Machine by Scott Campbell
Have You Seen My Dragon? by Steve Light
Five, Six, Seven, Nate by Tim Federle
El Deafo by CeCe Bell
Outside by Deirdre Gill
The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie and a BIG copy of Polar Express  by Chris Van Allsburg
and more!

Books of Wonder also has signed copies of Little Elliot, Big City available for order! Get a copy for someone special this  Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festivus!

Also, I wouldn’t have been able to get all this done without the help of the lovely Samantha Berger, who makes GREAT kids books:

Little Elliot, Big New York Times Book Review!

nyt_logoElliot is hot off the presses of The New York Times! Mark Rotella reviewed Little Elliot, Big City today, alongside Hug Me by Simona Ciraolo, A Good Home for Max by Junzo Terada, and The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie by Chris Van Allsburg. As if being written up in the Times isn’t enough of an honor, Rotella compares my work to one of my personal heroes:

“Mike Curato beautifully renders the images in rich earth tones that are soft and smooth, calling to mind ‘The Sweetest Fig’ by Chris Van Allsburg.”
