We Are The Ship

I gotta have this book! Every so often a book comes along that just grabs you from the get go. For me this is one of those books. I love the tittle. I love the story behind the book. I'm a big fan of Kadir Nelson. The previews of the illustrations are amazing. I want to see more. I want to read the story. I want to savor this book.

To find out more just follow these links:
Interview with Publishers Weekly.

YouTube Video.

I wonder if it's something about the whole story of baseball that I can't resist. I noticed a few of my all-time favorite books are on the same topic. I listed them here a while back while talking about inspiration.

I JUST walked back into my studio at the tail end of an interview with him on NPR- All Things Considered. Maybe you can find it on their website?
