The Problem: Harry and Horsie want cookies, but the jar is way out of reach.
The Solution: Build CookieBotthe most amazing cookie-grabbing robot ever!
What could go wrong?
Lincoln Agnew once tried to build his own robot out of a plastic bucket, a broken microwave, and "technology," but sadly its abilities were limited to catching fire. Years later, after giving up on world domination, he attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, where he obtained degrees in both illustration and photography. Lincoln made his debut as a picture book illustrator with Harry and Horsie, for which he won the 2009 Society of Illustrators "The Original Art" Founder's Award as well as the Marion Vannett Ridgway Award. He is currently rebuilding that robot.
Praise for HARRY AND HORSIE: “Young boys and space adventurers will adore this captivating, exuberant, and contagious tale.”
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Praise for HARRY AND HORSIE: “With dashing visuals that capture Harry’s deep-space adventure with verve to spare, and a comforting resolution, this has potential to be a bedtime favorite.”
Praise for HARRY AND HORSIE: “A delightful story with even more delightful illustrations. Agnew’s art is wonderfully retro-modern - like what the future looked like in, say, comic books of the ‘50s.”
-New York Post
Agnew’s high-energy, retro look makes a dashing complement to Van Camp’s hyperpowered flight of fancy.
