Beginning with an love for Archie comics and Calvin and Hobbes, Lucy Knisley (pronounced "nigh-zlee") has always thought of cartooning as the only profession she is suited for. A New York City kid raised by a family of foodies, Lucy is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago currently pursuing an MFA at the Center for Cartoon Studies While completing her BFA at the School of the Art Institute, she was comics editor for the award-winning student publication F News Magazine.

Lucy currently resides in Vermont where she's working on comics among the pines. She likes books, sewing, bicycles, food you can eat with a spoon, manatees, nice pens, costumes, baking and Oscar Wilde. She occasionally has been known to wear amazing hats.



Relish: My Life In The Kitchenby LucyKnisley in What Are You Reading Now? (May 2023)


Cheerful rhyming text describes a big, day-long group bike ride up and down a mountain from the point of view of a kid on their mom's bike: passing cars stuck in traffic, sharing water and snacks, waving to friends and strangers.

3.5–Cute food memoir in the form of a graphic novel. There are a couple of moments that aren’t for children, so it’s not a kids’ graphic novel, despite the friendly cartoon style.

I feel such kinship with Knisley, she wrote every word and included every fact I needed to hear. I’m going to reread the HELL out of this book if and when I plan on dealing with pregnancy. Also the recommendations in the back for futher reading/listening/snacking, YES PLEASE

And the inclusive language she uses is so well done and much appreciated

Reads a bit like Dancing at the Pity Party

Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC!

I. LOVE. THIS. It made me very sad and weepy at work, but I absolutely love how Lucy Knisley draws, especially how she draws cats. I followed all of these comics on twitter and absolutely fell in love. She totally knows the love of a cat, and the true personalities they all have.
