Perfect Picture Book Friday
Leave Me Alone! (Roaring Brook Press, 2016) written and illustrated by Vera Brosgol is a fun picture book that goes from normal life to the fantastic and back again.

The book is Vera's debut picture book and a Caldecott Honor award winner, too. Learn more about Vera on her website where you can see more about her art and writing and even buy prints.
