Page 158 Books welcomes Matt Myers, author and illustrator of Hum and Swish, named as one of Publisher’s Weekly’s best books of the Summer 2019. Hum and Swish is a picture book about a young girl, Jaimie, who wants to quietly finish her art projects at the beach, but is continuously interrupted with questions about what she's creating. Jamie does her best to tune it all out and focus on her creation . . . until she finds a like-minded friend. Matt's acrylic and oil paint illustrations perfectly illuminate the beach setting, both chaotic and crowded as well as a place for contemplation. Matt Myers has illustrated more than a dozen books, including The Most Terrible of All, A Dog Named Doug, the New York Times bestseller Battle Bunny, and The Infamous Ratsos, a Theodor Seuss Geisel honor book. He lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. You can see more illustrations and fine art at
