Thanks so much for sharing, Gretchen!  Sounds like a great opportunity!!  Awesome that Charlesbridge and a STEM education center are partnering on this project! And as a kindergarten teacher, I'm always looking for stories that tie in math in a fun way! 

 :goodluck

I WAS able to find 2 books that weren't on the Wiki list, but going from one book every year to 2 books in 12 years is a curiosity, to say the least. Obviously, there could be many reasons why that may legitimately be the case, but it makes me worry that Amazon is simply lacking even more books than the Wiki list.

Amazon fills in a lot where Wikipedia leaves off.

Amazon is actually how I found out the Wiki page was out of date. My issue with Amazon is that it gets sorted by the most recent print date of each book instead of the original publishing date. Which makes it hard for me to make sure I've covered everything.

However, it's a step up from not having that information at all. So, thank you! Glad to introduce you to her work. ^-^

Oh, wow, beardedillustrations. Her work is stunning. I can see why she is such an inspiration..

If you go to Amazon and type her name in the subject bar, books will come up. Click her name beneath any title, and 144 "results" appear. It's possible some are duplicates, but I can already see Amazon fills in a lot where Wikipedia leaves off. (Wikipedia's last listing is from 2006, while Amazon's is an October 2018 pre-order for a new J. K. Rowling book!)

Thanks for introducing me to Lisbeth's work, beardedillustrations!!

Illustrating / Lisbeth Zwerger - illustrator

One of my favorite current illustrators is Lisbeth Zwerger. I grew up with her version of The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde and I've been slowly trying to collect her books now that I'm an adult.

However, I discovered today that the list of her books on Wikipedia is not up to date. As I can't find any sort of official website for her, I've been struggling to find a complete list of her work. Ideally, this hypothetical list would also include publication years...

Does anyone have any good resources for finding stuff like this? Either my googling skills are subpar or there's just not much information available online for her.
