Kirkus Gives Patrick’s Newest Children’s Book Rave Review

Books & Art

Wonderful news for Patrick and his newest picture book! Thank You and Good Night, due out on October 6, 2015, received a warm, wonderful review from Kirkus. The story captures the magic of a sleepover with friends with a little girl and her three stuffed companions: a bear, an elephant, and a rabbit.

Kirkus raves, “This picture book’s satisfyingly soft illustrations and diminutive dimensions … feel just right for its plush language and darling characters and content. Handmade paper absorbs pen, ink, and watercolor artwork: islands of images, nebulous in shape but rich in saturation and suggestive linework. As so often with McDonnell, the details charm even the most cynical viewers… ”
