Something’s Fishy, Toon Books, 2017

Something’s Fishy, 2017. From Booklist“With expressive figures, warm-toned backgrounds, and wide, open panels, this straddles the line between picture book and comic, making this fun, engaging volume especially well-suited to kiddos just starting to read on their own.”

  1. Hi Kevin – These are great. When is your student workshop in Oaxaca. We will be at MUPO and Taller Rufino Tamayo at the end of July during Guelaguetza. Will you be there then? If so, I hope to meet you.
