This Sunday, a glowing review of Little Elliot, Big City will appear in a little publication called THE NEW YORK TIMES! Here’s a snippet:
“The author-illustrator Mike Curato, making his picture book debut, beautifully renders the images in rich earth tones that are soft and smooth, calling to mind ‘The Sweetest Fig,’ by Chris Van Allsburg … “
So yeah, that was Mike being compared to one of his idols in the Sunday Times book review. You know, NBD. Be sure to read the rest here.
Seriously, though, what an honor for Mike. I know I keep saying it, but I am SO DAMN PROUD of him!
Update: We just found out that Little Elliot also made Amazon’s list of the 20 best children’s books of 2014! So much excitement here!
