School Library Journal Review of Bump

Bump in the Night got a very nice review in the School Library Journal Review; here is an excerpt:

Look, I know you've got a lot of monster books out there to choose from. Not just blue ones either. But sometimes you want a monster story that can give you cool visuals and a fun plot without sacrificing style or message. This little number won't change the face of friendly monster fare as we know it, but when it comes to amusing both adults and kids alike it certainly has the edge. Fun. Cute. Hard to resist.

Mention in New York Post

Ed got some ink in the venerable New York Post as the co-author of a literary cocktail book:

"Hard drinking used to be seen as a badge of respect, whereas now it's seen as a crutch," says Edward Hemingway, the grandson of Ernest. "Alcoholism is understood as more of a disease now than it was back in my grandfather's day."

Review of the Bar Tending Guide

Here is a nice review of the bar tending guide. An excerpt follows:

Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide, Cookbook of the Day

Hemingway and Bailey's Bartending GuideOkay, so it isn't a cookbook. It's a bartending guide. But still, Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers is worthy of a mention. There are a million billion books on booze out there, but not so many that add a face and swirl of words to the tasty libation.

More PR for Bump Signing

Here is yet another PR piece on Ed's upcoming Bump signing in the lovely Florida keys: lucky Ed!

Key West's 2008 Hemingway Days celebration is to begin not with a bang, but with a bump — when writer and artist Edward Hemingway introduces his engaging children's picture book, "Bump in the Night."

The youngest grandson of American literary legend Ernest Hemingway, Edward Hemingway is to debut and sign the book during a 5:30-7 p.m. reception Tuesday, July 15, at Key West's landmark Blue Heaven restaurant and bar, 729 Thomas St. The location is particularly meaningful because it's the site of a onetime boxing ring where Ernest Hemingway refereed neighborhood matches when he lived in the island city in the 1930s.

"I'm really excited to be coming to Key West to showcase the book, and it seems very appropriate," said Edward Hemingway, son of Ernest's youngest son Gregory. "My father spent a great deal of his childhood in the Keys and so did I — so what better place for me to launch my first children's book?"

Ed on Panel of Judges; Contest Ends Sept 7 ,2008

Found this item at Mlive.Com, which is about a contest in Michigan. Ed is on the panel of judges. Here is a snippet of the article:

"We have three wonderful judges: Steve Klein, editor of the Huron River Press; Joe Borri, a (Detroit) artist and writer; and Edward Hemingway, Ernest's grandson, who is himself a children's book illustrator. "This is a great opportunity for high school artists to have their work looked at by professionals," concludes Agnew, "get some exposure locally (we're picking five finalists and plan to use the images for display); and (have) a great thing to have in a portfolio if they're going to art school."

Bump Summary from a Catalog

Some catalog in Brazil had this to say about Bump:

BUMP IN THE NIGHT by Edward Hemingway, illustrated by Edward Hemingway, Putnam, 06/08

Billy's dreams of the fun he'll have with his teddy and dog the next day are interrupted by a bump in the night. He is a little scared; worrying about ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties, but the last monster that appears in his room isn't scary at all. He's a yo-yo using, horseback-riding, ghoulie-scaring, beastie-ropin' monster who's perfect to take on adventures (and he's sensitive - he gives Billy his teddy back when Billy cries). ($15.99 US; $19.00 CAN; 8½ x 9½; 32 pages; Ages 3-5)

Selling Points:

* Literary pedigree: Eddie is Ernest Hemingway's grandson.

* Positive twist on classic fear: Encourages kids to have fun with their imagination and make friends with your monsters!

* There's a Nightmare in my Closet mixed with Where the Wild Things Are: Plays with kids imaginary fears and adventures in similar ways.

* Author's Profile: Eddie Hemingway has a Bachelors degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and Masters from The School of Visual Arts. His illustrations have appeared in Nickelodeon Magazine, GQ, Gourmet, The New York Times and more.
