How kewl is this?
Unshelved a daily comic strip set in a library, which every Sunday becomes a book review in comic form. This is a fantastic idea, on top of which, Peeps is their book of the week! Color me very pleased.
Check it out:
Ah, if only they’d spelled my name right. But you can’t have everything.
For the full-size version, and the rest of this excellent strip, (and to see my name spelled right! thanks guys), go here.
I will take this opportunity to tell you all that Peeps has been on a winning streak lately:
Top Ten Book for the 2006 ALA Best Books YA Awards
Top 40 Childrenâ€™s Books for 2005 in Kirkus Reviews
Awarded a 2005 Blue Ribbon by the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
Cool, huh? So thanks to all the librarians, reviewers, and editors out there who slave to read dozens (even hundreds) of books every year and then bother to write them up. Without you, us readers wouldn’t find nearly as much of the cool stuff there is to read.
And us writers? Well, we’d just starve.
PS Thanks to John, Joe, and Kendall for alerting me to the Unshelved strip.
