For all the links to the fantastic entries in the Illustration Contest, please go HERE! Really! Please go!
So here’s the thing.
As you well know, if you spend any time at all around this blog, I am prone to the occasional hare-brained scheme.
Sometimes these schemes get planned a bit in advance. Other times they are done completely on the fly. And still other times I THINK they’re planned and then I realize I’ve omitted a petite detail.
My current hare-brained scheme is the First Ever Pretty Much World Famous Illustration Contest and it falls into category #3: I THOUGHT it was planned, but oops! there was that darned detail! – the detail being that WYRI is scheduled so far in advance that I already had people lined up through June when I thought up this particular harebrained scheme, so we’re having to take a little break from the contest today.
Therefore, even though we will all be intently focused on Janet’s pitch today, I want to make sure everyone keeps visiting the fabulously talented illustrators and encouraging all their friends and relations to do so as well even though that post is no longer at the top of the blog, okay?!! Because they worked so hard, and did such an amazing job, and everyone should go admire their talent and creativity!
And now you may have Something Chocolate!!! (That is not bribery, it’s just good sense.)

Today’s pitch comes to us from Janet who says, “Hi. My name is Janet Pamela Noble. I’m 49 years young, have 1 husband (so far), 2 cats, 3 children and have spent the last 20 or so years promoting a love of books and reading as a children’s librarian. When I’m not blogging about my favourite children’s books I love to write my own.”
Working Title: You’re A Pest, Betsy Thumbslurp!
Age/Genre: Early Chapter Book (ages 6-8)
The Pitch: Poor Coco. Her comfy world of cuddles and cake (all shapes, all sizes but preferably pink!) is turned upside down by the arrival of her thumb sucking, slurping, burping, pooing, shrieking, pampered baby sister, Betsy…
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Janet is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to telling you all who the finalists for the illustration contest are tomorrow! I can’t wait to spill the beans 🙂 And then you all will have the chance to vote for you favorite and we’ll see who wins! So exciting!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!
