"Today the greatest challenge in publishing is distribution and discoverability. As a result, sites like [PictureBooksReview] are more important than ever to discerning readers, new authors and independent publishers."
-Steve Floyd, chief executive officer of August House books

"The interview is so amazing! I appreciate you picking up on all these aspects of what I've been doing. It's always great to talk with someone who understands what goes into these things."

The Araboolies of Liberty Street (1989)

Written by Sam Swope

Illustrated by Barry Root

Thanks so much to Cynthia McDermott, Professor at Antioch University in Los Angeles, for providing this review! I was not familiar with this book before she contacted me, but I'm glad that has been corrected!

Only General Pinch would have the nerve to stop every child from having any fun in the neighborhood. Always on guard at his window, he uses his bullhorn to stop whatever he does not like, all the while threatening to “call in the Army.”

"I'll call in the army!"
His world changes when the Araboolies move in next door. They have strange animals who live in the house, they have a huge bed that the entire multicolored family sleeps in outside and they play and laugh. Unfortunately for General Pinch and his wife, the Araboolies do not speak English (actually we do not know what they speak).
