A Great Review at Children’s and Teens’ Book Connection
More reviews are coming in for What Is That Thing? I received a great review from Children’s and Teens’ Book Connection where they say:
In this delightful new story from talented poet and writer, Kevin McNamee, we see him doing what he does best–create a story that youngsters will love.
How sweet I that? They also go on to say:
The artwork by K.C. Snider is absolutely wonderful. From mom the space alien with kitchen utensils sticking out of her head to Jungle Jenna swinging on the vines, her illustrations will capture the hearts of young readers who really want to now how Jenna feels.

To me, one of the finest moments in the life of a writer other than getting an acceptance, is getting a great review. After all the hours spent bringing what was once a vague idea to an actual physical book, someone else looks at it and says, “This is good stuff.” It never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a writer and a poet. But I have been everything else from an accountant to a short order cook. I have been writing since elementary school, and began seriously writing for children a few years ago. After receiving countless form rejection letters, my stubborness finally paid off. I have several picture books published and my poetry has been included in a poetry collection titled, A Eyeball in My Garden: And Other Spine-Tingling Poems.
