I found a lovely surprise in my mailbox recently – James Yang's latest picture book, Puzzlehead. James is a fellow illustrator and friend of mine whose work is regularly seen in Newsweek, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The hero of the story, Puzzlehead, can't quite figure out where he fits in the world, but with his friends, he eventually finds his way. I love how this book makes modern so friendly. And since it's been requested for bedtime several nights in a row, I can say with some confidence that the kids love it as much as I do.
