YA Fairy Tale
Ponies Take to the Water

Hipster Babies. Sigh.

The author of the forthcoming board book Urban Babies Wear Black lives in the, eh, suburbs. The Journal News profiles Michelle Sinclair Colman in today's issue; a reporter writes,

"Instead of introducing readers to fuzzy bunnies or talking bears, Colman's work features yoga-practicing, latte-slurping tots (charmingly illustrated by Nathalie Dion). And she's hoping city-dwelling parents — weary of books about Barney and Babar — will appreciate Urban Babies as much as their children."

What's that again?  I already appreciate my child more than I appreciate Urban Babies, and I haven't even seen the book yet.  Oh, that's not what the journalist meant? Copy editor on vacation, guys?
