Congrats to STC‘s very own John “J.J.” Austrian, whose children’s picture book Worm Loves Worm will be published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollins. Illustrated by the incomparable Mike Curato, the wonderful work will be available on January 5, 2016. Watch this space as we get close to that date for a blog in which J.J. shows how he “beat out” the book, which is “a celebration of love in all its splendid forms.” Yay, J.J.!
