March/April Cover Madness Winner!

Congratulations to Paul Zelinksy's 2013 March/April Horn Book Magazine cover! It's based on the pictures Zelinsky did for Z Is for Moose (Greenwillow, 2012), written by Kelly Bingham. As one Cover Madness voter commented: "How can anyone resist that Moose face?"  

Read about the process behind the illustrations in Z Is for Moose from Paul himself in this Talks with Roger post.
