We asked A.J. Cosmo to tell us about his favorite book; he cheated and gave us two:

Current favorite is When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead, closely tied with Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. I read a lot of children’s literature so I’m sure this will change soon.

When You Reach Me is clever, well-drawn, and perfectly captures a genuine feeling of childhood (and then throws in a sci-­fi twist).

The Graveyard Book is just ridiculous in its show of skill. The setting and characters are imaginative, well researched, and believable. The world is at once unique and familiar, and I couldn’t be more jealous of Gaiman’s skill.

Check them both out if you haven’t already.

AJ COSMO is the Los Angeles-based author and illustrator of the bestselling e-books The Monster That Ate My Socks and Monsters A to Z. He released his first middle grade novel, Soaked in April; as part of the Look. It’s My Book program, every copy of Soaked sold provides a copy to an underprivileged child.
