|A Note From The Author|
|"Unlike Max, I've never hated picture books. This book came from a place deep inside me and although it pokes fun, it was done out of my love of children's books. I had lots of books in my house from before I can remember (I'm sure they were bought for my older brother and sister, but I soon made them mine.) and we were always walking down to the Keyport Library to get more. Many of the ones I've never forgotten are in my book but I've never stopped reading them and continue to discover new ones as they come out. I'd like to acknowledge all of the picture book authors and illustrators who inspired me throughout my life. I'm sure, like me, they were inspired by the ones that came before and we can only hope to be privileged to inspire the next generation of writers and artists."|
