The @nytbooks book review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, on display in Arthur’s office, is 20 years old today. ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
“J.K. Rowling, a teacher by training, was a 30-year-old single mother living on welfare in a cold one-bedroom flat in Edinburgh when she began writing it in longhand during her baby daughter’s nap times. But like Harry Potter, she had wizardry inside, and has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special.”
Now that the cover of the forthcoming THE GREAT SANTA STAKEOUT (9/19) has been revealed, here’s a snap of our fresh-off-the-presses F&G.

Had a fabulous dinner with the legendary Arthur Levine (my publisher and J. K. Rowling’s editor) before my presentation for the #usbby. To have seen him nodding and smiling in the front row while I talked about how to create a culture of resistance to injustice through children’s literature affirms that I am with the right publisher. We are conspirators in this struggle. ✊🏽🌈💥#TheMoonWithin @aalbooks @scholasticinc #alamw19
Maria Russo of @nytbooks shared some thoughts on @shauncytan’s latest, TALES FROM THE INNER CITY, this week: ・・・
“With his surreal imagery and haunting tales of displacement, the Australian author and illustrator Shaun Tan lays waste to the idea of a boundary between books for children and for adults. His latest, "Tales from the Inner City," consists of stories about how we share the earth with animals, accompanied by unsettling art that invites you to examine the role of wild creatures in your own life. Even our attachments to cats and dogs, it turns out, is not so simple.” - Maria Russo, children's book editor #mariarecommends | @aalbooks

The holidays are right around the corner, and if you’re anything like us, you’ve still got a long list of gifts to buy. For the bookish kid in your life, night we suggest THE LOTTERYS MORE OR LESS by Emma Donoghue? This sequel (completely readable as a standalone) finds the beloved and bustling Lottery family enmeshed in quite a bit of chaos at the holidays, and Sumac Lottery is set on keeping the family’s traditions intact. But can Sumac hang on to the spirit of the season when plans go awry? ☃️❄️🌬
Big 🎉 congratulations 🎉 to @kellyyanghk, @shauncytan, and @danieljose1 for making it on to @washingtonpost’s Best of 2018 list!!! 🥳🥳🥳
