Matt Myers presents Hum and Swish

Hum and Swish is a picture book about a young girl, Jamie, who wants to quietly finish her art projects at the beach but is continuously interrupted with questions about what she's creating. Jamie does her best to tune it all out and focus on her creation . . . until she finds a like-minded friend. Matt's acrylic and oil paint illustrations perfectly illuminate the beach setting, both chaotic and crowded as well as a place for contemplation.  

Author bio: Matt Myers has illustrated over a dozen books for children, including Erin Cabatingan's Musk Ox books, Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett's Battle Bunny, and many more. Hum and Swish is the first book he's both authored and illustrated. He lives with his wife Maya Myers in North Carolina.
