MEET POONAM MISTRY


                                     

Poonam Mistry (@poonammistryart) is a 2019 Kate Greenway Medal Finalist. She is the illustrator for my picture book, GOODNIGHT GANESHA, due out on Philomel Books in Fall 2021. Edited by Liza J. Kaplan.

"The minute I held @chitrasoundar's book, YOU'RE SAFE WITH ME, I knew in my heart, I wanted Poonam to illustrate #GOODNIGHTGANESHA. Lucky me, our editor. @LizaJKaplan, also wanted to work with Poonam! And the universe aligned such that Poonam wanted to work with us after reading the manuscript text. The interior sketches she shared were fantastical. All I can say without tearing up, is that she captured my imagination brilliantly and I LOVE the illustrations I've seen so far. "


While Poonam continues to work on the illustrations to complete the book, check out some of the other books she has illustrated. And check out the Illustrator Shoutout Video we did with my @Forever21PBs Promo Group.

TYPEWRITER RODEO
"Goodnight Ganesha"


My agency sister, Kari Anne Holt, wrote us a poem, so lovely, to celebrate GOODNIGHT GANESHA and the launch of this newsletter!



I absolutely love the rainbow reflection across the page.
Thank you so much Kari Anne!

In appreciation of Kari Anne's "Typewriter Rodeo" Poem, I told her we would come up with some "Typewriter" poems of our own and share them in the
GOODNIGHT GANESHA Scrapbook I'll be keeping for Launch Day
in FALL 2021. I plan to read one or two, or who knows, maybe more at the launch?

Put your thinking caps on, focus on one word - BEDTIME, and let's see what we can come up with? Goooo!

Please submit your poems here:

Picture Book Debut Groups

Although GOODNIGHT GANESHA (Philomel) doesn't release until Fall of 2021, I am diligently working behind the scenes with other debut authors on my launch. Yes. It takes a very long time to birth a book baby!
