When I read your entry I didn't know if your book truck was new or it was full of new books. . . ah the beauty of the English language.

Roaring Brook is generally diligent about design, too. Consider their dominance in Caldecott Medals over the past five years.

I don't think it's a bad spine, Andy; RB now gives all its advance reading copies a uniform design, which can work to one's advantage or not. (ARC design could itself make for a juicy blog item; remind me.) Although I might not have gone with the green khaki, the joke is just the ironic confluence of author and title. Who's got other examples of that?
