“This picture book is 12 chapters and 96 pages of awesome… written by several big, creative, amazing, hard-working, and inspired writers that you haven’t heard of until now — because they’re in elementary school.” -Picture Book Review-

What an amazing review of Where Is It Coming From?, 826michigan’s first major publication featuring students from Detroit. We think the stories are delightful, hilarious and filled with the energy of the fantastic students who wrote them. It’s our view that this book just may be a great collector’s item — not only because of the students who wrote it, but also because of who illustrated the stories. This is Dave Eggers’ first time bringing to life the pages of a picture book, and we must say the images are imbued with Dave’s personal sense of anarchic wit.

Where Is It Coming From?  is available online exclusively at Literati Bookstore. It can also be purchased at Liberty Street Robot Supply and Repair and Literati Bookstore’s Ann Arbor location. Source Booksellers is our exclusive retail partner in the City of Detroit.
