Find her online at www.susannahlloyd.com and on Twitter @Susannah_Lloyd Jacob Grant makes picture books. Absurd and heartfelt picture books. Originally from Ohio, he now lives with his wife and baby boy in a very windy city in Illinois. Day and night he can be found at his home studio, drawing, painting and writing until something feels story-ish. When he's lucky, some of this mess gets made into books! His previous titles include Bear's Scare (Bloomsbury Children's Books, 2018), Through With The Zoo (Feiwel and Friends, 2017) and Little Bird's Bad Word (Feiwel and Friends, 2016).
January 2020 Book of the Month | With a concept based entirely upon the universal truth that as soon as somebody tells you not to think of something, you immediately do so and the quite philosophic concept of visualisation of language heard or read, this book will have young( and old) readers in stitches. Stamped with a No Silliness Allowed warning on the front cover, we can anticipate plenty of silliness ahead despite the firm instructions from the very serious scientist introducing the amazing book that has the power to show a picture of the reader’s thoughts. Sadly, it all goes wrong for him as soon as he uses pink elephants as an example of what not to think about and quickly escalates as he thinks of more terrible scenarios involving elephants, mice, panties and their bottoms. The explosive finale causes him to order the reader to put the book down and “Don’t even think about” picking it up again…..This is bound to be instantly disobeyed in every home and classroom! The zany illustrative style is perfectly suited to this story and the clever use of the only white space being within the speech bubbles immediately emphasises the instructional and increasingly shouty nature of the scientist’s words. Both great fun and a creative inspiration, this is a must have purchase!
