Praise For The Amazing Idea of You

“In Lindquist's clear, airy art, the child grows older, planting new apple trees as a young adult. At last, she picnics with her own children in the orchard she has grown: 'All around are apples . . . And every last one/ has an idea inside./ Just like you.'” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Opaque, spring-bright colors in the watercolor, pencil, and gouache illustrations . . . complement the text's suggested importance of a human connection with nature. . . . [A] bedtime read-aloud about big ideas and the promise in everyone.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Bursts with freshness in illustration and text . . . . A gentle yet deliberate reminder of the greatness deep inside every living being.” —School Library Journal

“The language is lyrical and often stunning. . . A book to pore over and think about.” —Booklist Online

About the Author

Charlotte Sullivan Wild was first struck speechless by a crush in preschool. In grade school she may have cut and pasted a special valentine for someone and been too shy to sign it. But she’s not shy about love anymore! She loves selling books, teaching, interviewing authors on the radio, hiking, singing, talking with kids and writing stories for them. Her first picture book is The Amazing Idea of You illustrated by Mary Lundquist (Bloomsbury, 2019). Originally from snowy Minnesota, she now lives wherever her wife is stationed, from Texas to Italy, to see what they might find—together.
