Pot o' Comic Gold

Hello friends and/or casual readers! And a happy St. Paddy’s day to you! Here is a little comic I scribbled up and an update below...

UPDATE: Looks like I'm not the only one to make a comic with this gag...

Ha ha! Pinching! Ha! Okay. So I’ve done a couple of interviews lately and I wanted to share them with you today. Both of these cropped up on the internet just this week:

-The first is an interview for the fantastic blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. If you haven’t visited Seven Imp before, now is the perfect time. The blog’s author, Jules, has just started writing for Kirkus Reviews.

-The next interview is for the BookPage blog. You may remember that I recently did this illustrated questionnaire for them. The interview is a nice follow up and features my own daughter, Zita, who is turning six this week (Five! oh Five where did you go?). Also, and here’s the important bit, they are giving away three copies of Zita the Spacegirl. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment in the comments section answering the question “Who was your childhood hero?” (I am probably not going to enter).

-Finally, here is a nice review of the book by the super cool Dr. Katie Monnin who Anna and I had the pleasure of meeting last fall before the New York City Comic Con. She uses comics in the classroom as reading and literacy tools and this review even includes a lesson plan. For real!

On my table now:
