It's been a busy busy fall for author and ... photographer, Matt Beam!

His latest young adult novel, Last December, has been received with wide open arms in the US. See News and (Great) Reviews below! With perfect monthly timing, Last December comes out in Canada THIS January. Cool.

Matt's first book of photography, City Alphabet, has confused readers in a really really good way. Is the book an abecedarium (a what??) or an art book? Meantime Quill & Quire has called it one of the top five children's books of 2009.

Last but not least there's a new FANS page on the site. Take a look!

City Alphabet Reviewers have been ABuzz with Comments about City Alphabet, created with talented writer Joanne Schwartz. Publishers Weekly says the "stark, metallic, and urban" City Alphabet will "immediately grab readers' attention" and "encourage children to think about alternate ways of seeing their surroundings." Meantime, Kirkus Review's calls Last December's 15-year-old protagonist "an intelligent, likable character with an utterly fresh and original voice" (starred review!) and Booklist says the novel is "a quiet, accurate, fully sketched portrait of an adolescent male facing life's challenges."
