I love being sent these pics of my book as it makes it's way into bookstores all over the place. This one was sent to me by my friend Morgan from New York's McNally Jackson Books.

 

"Our featured children's book, Eerie Dearies: 26 Ways to Miss School by Rebecca Chaperon, reminds us of the mysterious boxes created by artist Joseph Cornell. Cornell searched secondhand stores, record shops, used bookstores, etc. to collect materials eventually used/repurposed in his haunting shadowbox collages, iconic assemblages, and cabinets of curiosity. Author Rebecca Chaperon appropriates worn book covers, fairy tale themes, vintage clothing styles, and collage techniques to create layered illustrations/paintings that elevate cautionary tales to evocative high art." - Yvonne (McNally Jackson Books NY)
