In 2019, Candlewick Press will be publishing ILP alum Ashley Benham Yazdani's non-fiction children's book about the creation of Central Park. Ashley wrote and illustrated a dummy book version of this story for her thesis, culminating in an exhibit of her work in spring of 2016. Ashley describes the opportunity to be published by Candlewick as "literally a dream come true!" Look for the book on shelves in early 2019!
Off to Be the Wizard by Scott Meyers and illustrated by ILP alumna Liz Pulido is available for purchase as a Kindle in Motion book, one of the first of this new format of books for Kindle Fire. Kindle in Motion books include art, animation, or video features that can be viewed on certain Fire tablets and the free Kindle app for iOS and Android. Congrats, Liz!
