Perfect Picture Book Friday
Normal Norman (Sterling Children's Books, 2016) by Tara Lazar and illustrated by S.britt is a funny book.
A young Junior Scientist is going to narrate a book for the first time. Her assignment is to define the word Normal. She drafts an orangutan named Norman to be her example of Normal. But things don't work out as she has planned.
On her website about page, Tara says,
Street magic performer. Hog-calling champion. Award-winning ice sculptor. These are all things Tara Lazar has never been. Instead, she writes quirky, humorous picture books featuring magical places that everyone will want to visit."
And, of course, you'll want to check out her other picture books and more stuff here.
She's also the founder of Picture Book Idea Month which this year became Storystorm.
I love the landing page of S.britt's website--it looks like a board game. From there you can read about him, see images from the books he's done, check out art he's done for magazines and newspapers, and . . . Oh, just go look yourself--it'll be fun.
