So it’s a book about sheep trying to solve a murder. It’s mostly about sheep talking about grass and stories though.
I’ve come across America in both Captain Marvel and Young Avengers but this was her first stand alone series. Sadly, it had a pretty short run – just 12 issues.
Okay, this book was super stressful because it was largely about the impact of an idiot president can have on a country. It was also the third book in the Read Harder Challenge (book about journalism or book by a journalist). I loved it but bloody hell am I stressed and angry about the state of the world
I’m not sure I would have ever looked or found this book if it hadn’t been for the challenge. Dear Genius is a selection of letters to authors and other people from Ursula Nordstrom, head of the children’s book department for Harpers books from 1940-1973.
So what is this book all about? I kind of think of it as a catalogue of how not to design, followed by the better way to design things. It’s about human-centred design or prototyping, testing, getting feedback and iterating.
