For me, this is the moment when a book begins to feel real -- the first time I see its title in the publisher's catalog. Behold, the first sighting of Joe and Sparky, Party Animals! in Candlewick Press's 25th anniversary catalog.
And what a list! This season's catalog includes so many spectacular books that I had to stop circling titles for my to-read pile. You can browse the full Spring-Summer 2017 catalog on Candlewick's website.
