Goodnight Already! Another Great PB Discovery



I'm always excited to share when I find a good book.  Goodnight Already! by Jory John & Benji Davies doesn't really tell a new story, since it's one we're all familiar with. The characters may change, but the story is the same:

Bear can't wait to go to sleep, but Duck is wide awake. Will Bear ever get Duck to leave him alone?

This book is well worth taking a look at. Both young and old will enjoy the story and cute illustrations.

The Dreaded Synopsis


I thought the hard part would be finishing the book. But now it seems publishers and agents want to see a synopsis. Really? Won't the first two or three chapters work? Why didn't I write a picture book?

If you, like me, are facing the dreaded synopsis you might want to check out the sites listed below. Consider meditation and deep breathing along with the detailed directions.
