Little Robot and Children's Book Week

It's Children's Book Week, and I am all over the internet!

First off, it's always an exciting day when I receive my first real, physical copy of one of my books and that happened last week when Little Robot arrived in the mail! I was so excited opening the envelope that my hands were shaking. This is the first book I've had produced at this trim size and I've very happy with it. Here are some pictures:

There are more pictures of the book over on the First Second website RIGHT HERE.

And speaking of Little Robot, I made a new Little Robot strip for the Washington Post to celebrate Free Comic Book Day (which was on Saturday). Here's the comic:


(click to embiggerize).

It ran in the Post with a nice little interview in which I talked about the art and influences for the book. You can read all that over by CLICKING HERE.

On Sunday Boing Boing ran a short article I wrote about kids comics. I don't know if I said anything groundbreaking about comics for kids, but I did post a list of comics that I think are great for summer reading. Check out the Boing Boing piece by CLICKING IT UP HERE.

And finally (for now), there is a short piece over at Sharp Read about my next picture book. This book is about a Goblin. You can see some concept art read a little bit about where that book came from HERE. I'm sure I'll be posting more about this one in the coming months.

And there's more to come. I have a couple more book announcements coming up this week as well as a look into my Little Robot sketchbooks. So much is happening! Stay tuned.

And as always, to everyone reading, thanks for following my work.

I cannot wait to share with my wife that you got a FCBD write-up in the Post. You were our highlight at SPX last year, and we are looking forward to seeing you again this year. We are looking forward to purchasing our preordered copies of Little Robot!

Ben Hatke said...

Oh no! I have to miss SPX this year! They are sending me to the West Coast that week.

Unknown said...

Are you going to Baltimore Comic Con? Grace and I have gone the last eight years!

Ben Hatke said...

It's possible I could be there on Sunday the 27th. My west Coast trip is from the 20th to the 26th...

Ben Hatke said...

I can't imagine I'd be tabling though.

Man, what a busy year!

Erin said...

I'm a children's librarian and I cannot wait until this book releases! I love your books and share them with everybody.
