Hot Men of Children’s Literature, Part 45 in a Series
These usually come out on Tuesday but, eh. Who’s counting?
So today’s fellow is a gap. A man I intended to include, nay PROMISED his editor to include, and then never did. Large gaps fill my brain to bursting, it seems. Really, it wasn’t until I bumped into him at the Eric Carle Honors that I thought to myself, "Betsy, that is a hot man." And then, "Didn’t I already feature him?"
Yeah, not so much. Which is a shame considering his talents. With two websites (one here and a delightfully droolly one here), some great picture books, and hopefully more in the works, I proudly present the one, the only . . . .
This is my favorite because he’s all broody but you can take your pick:
Aw. So sweet.. And how many of you were aware that Peter did the covers for Barkbelly and Snowbone, hmmmmm? Now go and locate his book Chowder if you haven’t seen it before. It’s a beaut.
