This Week's Hat Tip: Featuring Susan Eaddy


This week's Hat Tip goes to Julie Hedlund and Susan Eaddy for their delightful picture book to be: My Love is the Sun.

Both Susan and Julie credit me for having brought them together. And while I can't deny introducing them one fateful day in 2012 at the Bologna Children's Book Fair, I can claim no credit for what they have accomplished as collaborators since that time.

It was Julie's genius to include Susan in her inspired hybrid publishing scheme to bring My Love is the Sun into this world. Their aim: to finance the production of this 24-page picture book with Little Bahalia Publishing through crowd-sourced donations raised via Kickstarter.

This post was meant to give the team's campaign a boost at the half-way point. Yet, they've pulled off the inevitable without my help, and in record time too! Their campaign, in less than two weeks, is already fully funded!

But that doesn't mean you can no longer lend your support. Oh no! There's still plenty of time to contribute to the campaign. And no donation is too small for this worthy effort.

Worthy? You ask. Well, just take a look at this video interview with the illustrator, Susan Eaddy, and decide for yourself!

I think you'll agree that this is one picture book that -- fo' sho' -- deserves to sit front and center on your child's bookshelf. Even mine. And she's already 17!

If you liked my interview with Susan then you will absolutely LOVE this quickie video of Susan at work birthing her fantastical clay beasties!
