Did I never mention the McSweeneying? It's THE GOODS!

A busy fall and not being able to buy a copy locally kept me waiting to post about the AWESOME THE GOODS!

And the key:


Have you seen Mac Barnett and Adam Rex are nominated for an Edgar for one of my all-time favorite MG series, THE BRIXTON BROTHERS: IT HAPPENED ON A TRAIN?

And Mac's knitted up another awesome picture book, this time with Jon Klassen.
