Vanessa Brantley Newton’s newest picture book, Mary Had a Little Glam, written by Tammi Sauer, has been receiving lots of great attention! The rhyming picture book tells the story of glamorous little girl Mary, who helps all the children in her school learn about glamour, fashion, and fun. The picture book has been praised by reading blog Mile High Reading and featured on the site Picture Book Builders.
Picture Book Builders ran a feature on Tammi Sauer and Vanessa, in which Vanessa and Tammi discuss their inspiration for the story and the importance of diverse books, and included some of Vanessa’s adorable sketches for the picture book.
