Justin Krasner, as a child wrote a letter to NASA to be admitted into the space program. Today, he’s an editor at Odd Dot, a new imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group who works on books kids can use as tools to explore, expand, and create their own world. Justin’s projects include board books that help babies learn a new lesson, craft books which teach readers new skills, and definitive and interactive nonfiction that introduces a new concept (or a new take on an old concept). He is looking for new formats, new voices, and new takes on nonfiction favorites (and soon to be favorites) for kids 0-14.
