Fuse #8 Review

Elizabeth Bird over at A Fuse #8 Production (and NY children's librarian extraordinaire) has written a very astute review of Pouch!

While you're there, check out her many other excellent articles on all things kid lit. She is truly an preeminent blogger in her field. (And she was the only reviewer so far to notice Pouch!'s snazzy endpapers!)

See you at the circulation desk,

Profile on Finding Dulcinea

Hey folks,

Finding Dulcinea just ran a very thoughtful and comprehensive feature on my work. It begins:

David Ezra Stein's children’s books celebrate joy and simplicity, eschewing flash in favor of genuine introspection. His subtle interweaving of lessons in self-sufficiency and acceptance of change is neither intimidating nor heavy-handed. Themes of friendship and nature, seen in “Pouch!” and “Leaves” and “Monster Hug!” appeal to an international audience.

It was written by Sarah Amandolare. Read the rest HERE.

See you in the blogs,
