Notes From Your Bookseller

Built on the universal theme of being yourself, this is a humorous and catchy story about a blob trying to be scarier. It's a fresh take on a familiar theme that will appeal to young monster fans.

Itty Bitty Betty Blob tries to be bad, like a good little monster—but she's NOT GOOD at being bad! This perfect picture book shows kids (4-8) that being yourself is MORE than enough. With a heartstopping story and art by Constance Lombardo and Micah Player.

"The creatures from Slime Rancher collide with a monstrous universe in the vein of Flavia Z. Drago in ITTY BITTY BETTY BLOB. Adorable!" —Nicole, Oblong Books, Millerton, NY

It's monster picture day again, and Itty Bitty Betty Blob sits in front of the mirror where she practices growling for the camera. But for Betty it's not so easy. She's not a typical monster, so she doesn't love scaring anyone. What she loves is dancing and rainbows and cute furry creatures. So when mom hands her a perfectly horrible scaly black dress to wear on picture day, Betty isn't sure. Of course she wants to make mom happy, so she practices her growls in the mirror, and tries to look as monstery as her school friends. She even heads off to school with high hopes, practicing all the way there. . . and that's when she makes a discovery and soon finds herself among new friends with ideas that just feel right.

"Okay, I'm in love! Itty Bitty Betty Blob, you are perfectly precious just as you are!"  —Fred, Oblong Books, Millerton, NY

"Be Yourself and joy will follow!" —Bex, Books are Magic, Brooklyn, NY

About the Author

Constance Lombardo began drawing when she was 10 years old, inspired in part by the Illustrators Annuals her dad brought home from the advertising agency where he worked, and in part by her sister doing a drawing and getting lots of attention. She’s the author/illustrator of the middle grade Mr. Puffball series (HarperCollins) the picture book, Everybody Says Meow, and Hippo Park's hilarious Tiny Spoon vs. Little Fork. She lives in Asheville, NC with her family. @conlombardowrites

Micah Player began his illustration career desiging and illustrating for Paul Frank Industries. He is the author/illustrator of the picture books Chloe, Instead and the Lately Lily series (Chronicle Books). He is the illustrator more recently of two books by Lucky Diaz: Palatero Man and La Guitarrista (Harper). He lives in a little house beneath a giant tree in the Utah mountains, with a lovely schoolteacher (and wife) named Stephanie. They are the parents of two kids, one Yorkshire terrier, and several Casio keyboards. Micah's Instagram, where he shares his own illustrations and words express his feelings about the current state of the world, and is a terrific place to get to know him. @micahplayer
