Cartoonist Steve Breen?s first children?s book was published yesterday by Dial.
?Stick? is a 40-page hardcover starring a frog who likes to do things on his own, with no help from his mother.
Breen, who won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1998, is with the San Diego Union-Tribune and Copley News Service. He also does the ?Grand Avenue? comic strip for United Media.
“Stick” is the latest in a growing number of children’s books by syndicated comic creators and editorial cartoonists. Recent books have been written and/or illustrated by Mike Lester, Patrick McDonnell, Wiley Miller, Henry Payne, and Howie Schneider, among others.
E&P was tipped off to Breen’s new book by editorial cartoonist/illustrator Lucas Turnbloom, who has drawn for newspapers, other media outlets, and Catholic News Service.
