the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

some nice words about Everything Goes…

July 15, 2011 | bookmark | Leave a Comment

We received a few nice blurbs the other day from some book sellers who saw advance copies of Everything Goes: On Land. After a year-plus of sitting in a studio by myself cranking this thing out, it’s sure swell to poke my head out of the hole and read this kind of thing.

Everything Goes: On Land is the story of a boy taking a car trip to the city with his father and all the modes of transportation they encounter there. Each two-page spread introduces us to a different class of vehicle, which is then followed by a see-inside spread allowing us to learn more about the different vehicles’ parts and how they work. The pages are so busy and colorful that a child will spend hours poring over them and discovering new details. At the same time, color-coded speech bubbles allow the parent to read the story’s conversation between father and son.

For booksellers, this delightful book offers the best of both worlds — a book for a non-reader to enjoy alone, and one to be shared between adult and child. This would be a perfect recommendation for a grandfather to read to his grandson.

Everything Goes: On Land is informational, educational, and just downright fun – you’re not going to find a better combination anywhere! This is Where’s Waldo?, Richard Scarry’s Busytown, and See-Inside for a new generation! Bravo Brian Biggs!”
Mary Brown, Books, Bytes, and Beyond

“I love this book. I can’t wait to read it to Ian, my 2-1/2 year old nephew who is really into vehicles. It is very Richard Scarry (a favorite of mine). I love the bright colors and detailed illustrations. This is a book that you look at over and over again and still find new things. I love the comments of the people in the street scene. There is so much to look at! It’s a really great interactive picture book, which will be great to hand sell. This book just makes me smile.”
Jennifer Brenninger, The Doylestown Bookshop

“This picture book comes with a money-back guarantee for endless hours of enjoyment for kids as well as moms and dads. Everything that has wheels and goes gets the funny-interactive treatment with great little stories and illustrations by Brian Biggs. Richard Scarry has met his match!”
