In May’s Notes from the Horn Book, I chat with Emily Jenkins (yay!) about her new picture book Water in the Park, people-watching, and quirky pet names. Also in this issue:
– more picture books about outdoor play
– biographies of sports heroes
– heroines of historical fiction
– YA adventure stories on audio
