Otto: The Story of a Mirror

About ten years ago, while I was doing books with Frances Foster at Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, she gave me a copy of a picture book just published by that house: Otto: The Story of a Mirror. I loved that book, and I had since been very curious about the author and illustrator, Ali Bahrampour. Last year I had the fortune of meeting and getting to know him, a fellow Sendak Fellow. He has many other great ideas for picture books, and I think one of these days we'll be lucky enough to see them in print.
You can read more about Ali and Otto here (you'll have to scroll down).


  1. These are wonderful illustrations. I can see why you love the book!

  2. My kids and I love Otto, and I'd love to know how to get in touch with the author!
