Ann Patchett has written a picture book called Lambslide and its cover is cuter than it has any right to be.
Per Romper, Ann Patchett, notable writer of novels and memoirs for grown people, has written a children’s book called Lambslide. Although I am not a child, or even a person with a child, there are many things I like about this book.
1. The cover is adorable. Seriously. I like it very much. I’m almost annoyed about how much I like it. Excellent illustrating, Robin Preiss Glasser.
2. The title is a pun. The book is about a bunch of lambs who mishear “landslide” (from a child talking about a school election) and end up teaching themselves civics as they discuss their hopes and dreams for the slide. Cute; vaguely terrifying!
3. Ann Patchett. I like her! She writes good books and owns She writes good books and owns a bookstore that seems very lovely, though I have never been there myself.
Adorable work, everyone!
