Children’s Book Creators Celebrate National Doodle Day

Publishers Albert Whitman & Company, Chronicle Books, Gibbs Smith Publishers, and Running Press, have joined together to celebrate this year’s National Doodle Day. In preparation for the May 12th event, several authors and illustrators of children’s books have donated doodles for its annual eBay auction.

Here’s more from the press release: “Daniel Pinkwater, Annie Barrows, Tom Lichtenheld, Calef Brown, Peter Reynolds, Eric Carle, Jon Scieszka, Mo Willems, and Lydia Bastianich all agreed to create unique doodles for the auction. Doodles can be viewed at doodledayusa.org until the launch of the eBay auction on May 12.”

Some authors, like Kurt Vonnegut, have attracted as much fame for their doodles as they have for their writing. Reportedly, this is the first year publishers have participated in National Doodle Day. The publishers will host public events on that day in the following cities: Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Sausalito.
