In an attempt to keep up with the needs of today’s fast-paced digital world, the Horn Book will be transforming its reviews process to include a visual format exclusively for our website. Below is an example of how the review of 2019’s Newbery winner "Merci Suárez Changes Gears" by Meg Medina (Candlewick) would be remixed, courtesy of creative director Mark Tuchman.

...APRIL FOOL! While we'd love to have more Reviews Remix comics on the website, we'd need to hire A LOT of full-time artists to remix ALL the reviews in every Magazine. HUGE thanks go to designer Mark Tuchman for taking our basic idea to make a review comic and visually turning it into a zany laugh-fest ("Hilarious!" said author Meg Medina). We hope you agree.

For another kidlit-related joke, check out associate editor Shoshana Flax's April Fools' Day post on her own blog, Walk the Ridgepole. For more from the Horn Book about comics, click on the comics tag below.
