About Guest Illustrator E. B. Goodale & the Book!

E. B. Goodale is an author and illustrator. Her first picture book Windows, written by Julia Denos, received an Ezra Jack Keats Illustrator Honor, and was an ALSC Notable Book. She has since illustrated a handful of other picture books, and her author/illustrator debut, Under the Lilacs, was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in Spring 2020. She creates from her home in Massachusetts where she lives with her family and a black cat named Green.

Every house has a story. This house—an old one hunkered in the deep grass below a wide country sky—is a waiting house. Once it was full of laughter and song. The sounds of life rang within its walls. Now it stands quiet and still. The house has sheltered many families over the years and remembers them fondly, especially the children. New families arrive to look, but none stay. Perhaps the house, too, now belongs to the Long Ago and Used to Be? Or will the “right” family move in to honor its past and build new memories?
