Harry Bliss is an award-winning children's author and illustrator and a cover artist and cartoonist for "New Yorker" magazine. His book "Grace for Gus" is released this week. It's a graphic picture book, where the story of a young girl in New York is told almost exclusively via comic panels.
It features a guinea pig, an economic challenge, visual humor that pays loving tribute to New York, cartooning, children's literature, and the arts.
