Picture books bring all of these things into our lives through the perfect combination of art work and language. Plus, they’re totally portable.
It’s time for a reading and writing renaissance. I’m Lisa Morlock. I live in Iowa and work as a writer, editor, and teacher.
My first picture book, TRACK THAT SCAT!, came out in February of 2012 and was published by Sleeping Bear Press.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
From Midwest Book Review:
“An educational, nature-minded storybook, Track that Scat! is just plain fun to read aloud…”
Indie Kids’ NEXT List:
“As Morlock explains, if you see animal tracks, something is sure to follow: scat! Finn’s adventures are supplemented on each page by a description of each animal’s tracks, and gorgeous illustrations and a few well-placed puns add to the fun. Morlock takes the mystery out of poop, but leaves the giggles!”
From School Library Journal:
“The large spreads are inviting, and the dog, a basset hound, is cute, cute, cute, and the gross factor is likely to draw kids in.”
From Publisher’s Weekly:
“Morlock describes each animal’s habits and excrement in (extremely) detailed paragraphs…In addition to Bradshaw’s more fancifully painted spreads, the animal’s tracks and scat are depicted as they might appear in an animals identification guide.”
“This picture book’s bouncy rhymes, humor and puns, and colorful cartoonish illustrations keep things on the lighter side.”
