I was lucky enough to have lunch with the wonderful children’s writer Barbara Joosse today. Barbara is the author of such wonderful books as Mama, Do You Love Me?, Nikolai, the Only Bear, and Love is a Good Thing To Feel, among many others.
I got to sneak a peek at her newest book, Roawr!, which hits shelves in April. It’s a fantastic read-aloud picture book with brilliant illustrations by the talented Dutch artist Jan Jutte.
Barbara is a true pro, and if you don’t already know her work, check out Roawr! next month, coming from Philomel Books.
