What Books Are You Taking on the Road, John?

Selecting the twenty books that I will promote during Let’s Go Somewhere on 7/30 is not an easy job. There are so many wonderful books that I want to “read” in front of wacky roadside attractions and tell random booksellers, librarians, servers, and just about anyone who will listen to me about. Spreading book joy is one of my biggest missions in life. 

After much hemming and hawing, I selected the twenty books this morning. They are currently locked up in a secret cabinet in my basement. Not really, they are in an adorable Little Elliot, Big City bag that’s in the middle of my messy home office. Would you like me to take out one of the picture book gems and share it with you? Yes! OK.

Stunning, right? Creative, right? Masterful, right? Dramatic, right? You cannot wait to read it, right? I ask too many questions, right? 

Add this one to your to-read list. This isn’t the last time you’ve seen this wordless wonder featured here.
