2019 Kirkus Best Picture Book of the Year A construction crew rebuilds a rickety old clock tower that has become home to wild animals in this picture book for fans of Sheep in a Jeep and Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. An underlying message of cooperation and conservation drives this rollicking introduction to counting and shapes. The old clock tower used to stand tall and proud. Now, it’s rusty, dusty, moldy, musty. A construction team decides to turn zigzags into squares and get the clock chiming again. But wait: What will happen to all the animals who have made this dilapidated clock their home? Nothing can’t be fixed and everyone is welcome in Fix That Clock, a celebration of hard work, compassion, and collaboration.
Before he got into kids’ books, Kurt had a bunch of other jobs: picking fruit, mixing concrete, delivering oxygen, driving fork lifts, installing parking meters, mixing brine for maraschino cherries, and operating mechanical ventilators in a hospital, among other things. But nothing can compare with writing and illustrating.
Nothing yet! You should let Kurt Cyrus know that you want to hear from them about their book.
