Happy Children's Book Week!

I've been pretty busy writing, plotting, etc., so I shamefully almost missed Children's Book Week... Not that I needed motivation; in my world, every week is children's book week :-)

I love the poster (by Grace Lee) this year, don't you? It reminds me of how much I wish I had some illustrator skills, but alas, I don't. I spend a good amount of time around picture book artists, and I'm always in awe. Wish I had some talent...

How about you? Any talents/skills you wish you had?

Playing the banjo, carpentry, and photography are on my list. I should really take a class or two sometime.


  1. Fleur, I always wanted to play a musical instrument like the guitar or the piano or even the Indian tabla. I paint a fair bit and intend to take it up more seriously.

  2. Unfortunately, the best banjo teacher in town is retired. I do know of another one, though, when you're ready.

  3. I'll have to look up the table, Prashant--sounds intriguing...

    Deb: might have to pick your banjo brain sometime... :-)
