Steve Henry and me, Barbara Lalicki 


I teach a picture book classes with Steve Henry, whose newest book HIDE! was praised for "expressive and inviting characters" by Kirkus and called "a winner" by SLJ.

Because he approaches publishing as an author-illustrator while I come at it as an editor, we're offering perspectives from "both sides of the desk."
