New World Coming

A new website, anyway, launching next Tuesday, September 6th (fingers, legs, eyes, toes, etc. crossed). The address remains the same––but the look will be livelier and the navigation easier. This blog will be at (likewise for /outofthebox) and don’t forget our new blog debuting that day, /callingcaldecott.

One thing I’m most looking forward to is the ability to make and respond to comments about any articles, not just blog posts, we put on the site, and I’m hoping you will, as Quentin Blake had it, all join in.

Here’s a preview of my new look, courtesy of designer Lolly Robinson and illustrator Ed Briant:
