Proving people wrong

Friend and fellow writer and illustrator and superb presenter and other things Mike Rex recently reached out to suggest an especially eclectic topic for a picture book. I thought it sounded really fun and I can see kids loving it. Both of us are loaded up with other projects so neither of us is planning to pursue the idea at the moment, but in case Mike ever chooses to, I’ll be vague: its about a creature. And it’s a true story. 

I was flattered Mike thought of me for this (I am generally flattered anytime anyone thinks of me for anything). He explained why (and allowed me to quote him here): 

“Not sure if it’s picture book material...but then again you’ve made a career of proving people wrong with that!”

Though I probably shouldn’t lead with that in pitches, I’m again flattered.
