Alice in iPad

via Atomic Antelope Ltd
via Jago

Tilt your iPad one way to make Alice grow big as a house.
Tilt it the other and she shrinks... v cool.

see it in action here:

And what does it mean for picture books?
And picture book writers and illustrators?

could it be a fabulous cool add on to books? (why not?)
will it keep us all on our toes (absolutely!)
will it replace a picture book? (NO WAY!)
shall I put the kettle on? (yes please)

definition of a bad poem

Louis Simpson (author of Pulitzer Prize-winning "At the End of the Open Road") said: 

"When I write a poem, I don't know quite what it means. If I think I know what it means, I've got a bad poem. I want a poem to be beyond me. I want it to be something that transfers a feeling I don't quite understand the limits of."
