Hello, and thanks for stopping by!

Can't believe it's been a year already and the second Dill & Bizzy book is about to be released! Introducing OPPOSITE DAY:

From the publisher: Bizzy the strange bird has decided: Today is Opposite Day! Time to eat dinner for breakfast, have a loud dance party instead of a quiet rest, and say good morning at bedtime. But Bizzy’s best friend, Dill the odd duck, would prefer to have a normal day, with no opposites. So Dill says, “No, no, stop!” to Opposite Day, while Bizzy says, “Yes, yes, go!” Will Opposite Day turn best friends into worst enemies? Nora and Lisa Ericson’s playful picture book, Dill and Bizzy: Opposite Day (HarperCollins), combines an original introduction to the concept of opposites with an eccentric but heartwarming friendship story. If today is truly Opposite Day, be prepared to hate this book! ___ "Silliness resolves into true affection in this airy encore." Kirkus Reviews ___ "Readers of Dill and Bizzy’s first outing already know that they are respectively an “odd duck” and a “strange bird” but things get even kookier in this funny sequel when Bizzy announces that it’s Opposite Day. This means dinner for breakfast speedy morning runs instead of waddles and a “loud dance party” instead of a quiet rest all of which leaves Dill miserable. The Ericson sisters are working in near perfect comic sync and Lisa Ericson’s airy cartooning telegraphs the sense that Dill is trapped in a waking nightmare with no escape. Luckily a little logical maneuvering—“Bizzy” Dill ventures “if it is truly Opposite Day we are worst enemies”—is all it takes to persuade Bizzy to give it a rest. Readers thinking about declaring their own Opposite Days may find themselves thinking twice. Ages 4–8. Agent: Sara Crowe Pippin Properties.(Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
