MATTHEW SWANSON & ROBBI BEHR
We are a dad/mom, writer/illustrator duo—the people who write the stories and draw the pictures for Bobbledy Books. Over the past six years, we’ve worked together to publish more than 40 picture books for adults, including one for Chronicle Books. Now that we have three kids (Alden, 4; Kato, 2; and August, six months), we’ve decided that it’s high time to start making children’s books. The five of us live with our two cranky cats and one blue dog in the hayloft of an old barn on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The best way to learn more about us is on our blog, where we post stories and pictures of our creative and family lives each and every day. Feel free to write us an email. We’d love to hear from you.
Our good friend Drew Bunting is a dad/singer/songwriter/one man-band from Tennessee who now lives in Milwaukee where it is just too cold for his tastes. He has recorded three albums and dozens of songs. At this very moment, he is busy writing one for you. Every year, he records an album of children’s music for all the kids in the Bobbledy Books club.
Various media outlets have said various nice things about our past work, including the New York Times, USA Today, New York magazine, Slate.com, and BoingBoing.net. As soon as someone writes something nice about Bobbledy Books, we’ll post it here. Which is to say, if you are someone, we would love it if you would write something nice about Bobbledy Books so that we can post it here.
We have appeared at various festivals, bookstores, conferences, symposia, colleges, universities, and schools to read, present, and run workshops about creative collaboration, making books, and running a small press. As soon as we do any of these things in a Bobbledy context, we’ll post them here.
Various bookstores, galleries, and boutiques sell our books for adults. As soon as any bookstores see fit to carry our Bobbledy Books, we’ll post their names and vital info here.
