Some green links - for the week that’s in it.

Belated Happy Paddy’s Day! My head is a bit sore this morning - I’m having a come down after copious amounts of Shamrock Shakes all weekend. Anyway, on with today’s post of interesting and highly informative links -

Some great PR for Mercier Press - two copies of Bairbre McCarthy’s The Keeper of the Crock of Gold was given as a gift to the Obama family yesterday, one for the first lady and one for the Obama children, Malia and Sasha.

I managed to miss Emma Brocke’s interview with Eric Carle in the Guardian - thankfully Carbags spotted it!

O’Brien Press are trying their hands at a graphic novel - and it looks great so far!

Susan (Stony River Farm) has some great links on children’s markets - and an interesting post - that are worth clicking.

Radio 4 is killing off Go4it - the last children’s series on the analogue station. The average age of the audience was between 52 and 55… The digital station BBC Radio 7 is now the home for kids stuff.

And finally - xkcd tapped into my obsessive love of Cervantes and Don Quixote - have a read!

    The graphic novel sure looks sweet doesn’t it!

  • No problem and nice coup!

    As for graphic novelisation - BrenB’s art - swoon.

  • Actually, the art is by Gerry Hunt with BrenB colouring. Gerry has done an amazing job with all the likenesses (both of people and architecture). They have worked together before, and the final product is just brill: every page is going to be a thrill for us, and I’ll keep putting bits on the blog as they appear.
