The National Cartoonist Society Nominated Cherise The Niece as one of just three in the category of Best Illustrated Book!!
What an honor! She didn't win, but we're still grateful for the consideration. I just don't know...how she's...going to take it...
Cherise The Niece from Penguin/ Plume. They call it an "adult picture book" and recommend it for readers 14 years and older. No wonder: It's a darkly comic story of a strange little girl that MAY be doing away with her aunts one-by-one. And it's told completely in rhyme. If you like Edward Gorey and Charles Addams and Tim Burton as much as I do, you might like Cherise as well.
