The WLA Conference has been this week (Nov. 1- Nov 4). At the conference this year, Tad Hills was there and gave a lecture on how he gets his ideas and how he does his books. He writes and illustrates the Duck & Goose books. He also just came out with the book How Rocket Learned to Read. These are picture books, so they're engaging for children. He uses a lot of color and has fun story lines for his characters to follow. Aside from his books being awesome, he is absolutely hilarious!
