where the writers are
Roxie Munro and HATCH!

When New Yorker magazine cover artist Roxie Munro interviewed with a children's book editor interested in her work, Munro warned, "I don't do cute, I don't do bunnies and bears."

Dozens of children's titles later, what Munro does is incredibly meticulous, detail-rich picture books that have kids poring over their award-winning pages. Whether it's her acclaimed Inside-Outside series exploring architecture of the world's great cities, her whimsical mazes-from-life projects, or her fun seek-and-find, lift-the-flap books, Munro's exacting artwork and clean, concise text easily capture youngsters' attention.

Munro discusses her latest inside-outside title, Hatch!, the fine art of balancing fine art with book work, and her "a-maze-ing" new app that you'll need to see to believe in my February children's market column at Authorlink.com.
