What's In A Name? Everything!
Agent Anna O was finally happy with "Max and the Art Contest" and sent it to Anne Moore at Candlewick, who promptly let us know that we might have a problem with the book's name. It seems David Fricking Weisner, genius writer and illustrator, has a book on the NY Times bestseller list called "Art and Max." My Max suggested putting a hit on Mr. Wiesner, but had to admit that wouldn't really solve anything. So, with a heavy heart, I started searching out new name for my beloved Max.
