I have a new favorite author! Matt Ryan. His medium is the ebook. He’s got a wicked way of combing child friendly topics and humor. His character driven tales of three friends have the momentum that only a picture book with an average of four words per page can muster. Many of his ebooks are available for free at sites like FreeKidsBooks . Kindle also sells his books for $0.99.
His stuff just got cooler though, with interactive stories available on his website RubbishBooks. I just wish I had found this guy a week ago, before I rode for 14 hours in a car with a cranky toddler. For future use, I recommend Patrick Builds a Bird House. Just try and paint siding with a fish, why don’t you?
