Shortly before the Thanksgiving holiday, Publishers Weekly reported on the launch of TOON Books. Everyone involved with the TOON Books project was gratified and overwhelmed by the very positive subsequent response, and we were quite happy to see the story picked up by such varied and important online commentators as Elizabeth Bird at the School Library Journal, Tom Spurgeon at the Comics Reporter (who also named RAW Junior Editorial Director Fran├žoise Mouly his “winner of the week“), the BEA’s Lance Fensterman, Anne Levy at Book Buds, Heidi MacDonald at PW’s “Beat” blog (who also had kind words to say about our website and blog),’s blog, and many others.

We’re very grateful for the interest in TOON Books we’ve seen to date. In addition to continued coverage of kids’ comics in general we will incorporate more information about TOON Books into this blog in the coming weeks, including behind-the-scenes sketches that will illustrate the process involved in constructing a comic book for early readers.
