Drawing live on The New York Times Books!

 

I had the great honor of being invited to draw and chat live on The New York Times Books' Facebook page!

As you can imagine, it was very very intimidating and stressful. Drawing and answering questions at the same time is hard (especially in front of thousands of viewers!)

 That's why, if you watch the whole video, you'll have the privilege of seeing me make a mistake while hand-writing the title of one of my books. C'est la vie!

Also, the interviewer mistakenly said I had translated the book myself. I didn't; Richard Kutner did this excellent job. I'm sorry I didn't correct her at the time, I was very nervous.

The Great Antonio

 

Meet The Great Antonio! My latest book tells the story of Montreal strongman Antonio Barichievitch, a colorful giant who pulled buses and trains with his hair. Yes, for real! I can't wait to hear what your kids think of him. You can buy my book in every U.S or Canada bookstore, or online everywhere.

The cranky ballerina

 

Here's my latest book!  Ada hates everything about ballet class, yet she still has to go! Arabesques? Grotesque! And then one Saturday, Ada pliés right out the door and into the hallway, smacking into someone who thinks her ungraceful moves are great

Based on a true story (OK, MINE), Ada will demonstrate that being angry is OK, that being bad at something doesn't mean you're bad at everything, and that you have to experiment to find your way. Hope you'll like it!
