My debut picture book, coming September 13th 2016 from Roaring Book Press. It's the story of an old woman trying to get her winter knitting done in a house full of noisy grandchildren. One day she gets fed up and yells, "LEAVE ME ALONE!" Her epic quest for peace and quiet takes her through the woods, up a mountain, and onto the moon.
“Brosgol’s folkloric tale is full of humor and repetition, making it a good choice to read aloud . . . Understatedly funny, just like the Eastern European folk tales on whose shoulders it stands.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The fizzy collision of old-fashioned fairy tale elements with space-age physics is delightful, and even the most extroverted readers will recognize that sometimes you just need a little space.” — Publisher’s Weekly starred review
My first graphic novel, published in June, 2011 by First Second Books. It's a young adult story about a teenage girl who finds a ghost at the bottom of a well.
"A natural companion to Gene Luen Yang's Printz Award winner, American Born Chinese (2006), and the contrast between everyday high-school concerns and supernatural horror add even further, broad appeal." - Booklist starred review
“Deliciously creepy. . . . a book sure to haunt its reader long after the last past is turned—exquisitely eerie.” - Kirkus starred review
“Delightful. . . . a beautifully rendered portrait of a zaftig young lass struggling to rid herself of her origins when everyone else wants to define her by them.” - L.A. Times
"Anya's Ghost is a masterpiece, of YA literature and of comics." -Neil Gaiman
I have short stories published in the 1st, 2nd and 4th volumes of the award-winning Flight anthology.
A 34-page minicomic I made for a some conventions in 2011, about a girl raised by wolves. Not a very happy story.
