  • With profound sadness, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers notes the untimely death of illustrator Patricia Cantor. Pat had recently finished her charming illustrations for Christopher Sat Straight Up in Bed, scheduled for publication on our Spring 2013 list. We had been looking forward to working with her on future projects when we learned the sad news that she was terminally ill. She died on July 17. We greatly regret that Pat did not live to see her last book in its finished form, but we take comfort in the knowledge that this book will exist as a permanent monument to her extraordinary gifts as an illustrator.
