Also a New York Times Best-Selling Author, Twiss’ New Book,
EVERYONE GETS A SAY, Introduces Children to the
Importance of Voting and Democracy 

Jill Twiss has won multiple Emmys, WGA Awards and Peabody Awards for her work as a writer on HBO’s acclaimed hit series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. In addition, Jill is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents: A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo and The Someone New – two picture books that teach children about tolerance for those that are different and the power of kindness over fear.

Just in time for the 2020 Presidential Election, Jill’s new children’s book Everyone Gets a Say offers a timely message about the importance of voting and democracy. In this sweet-natured story, Pudding the snail and his friends can’t seem to agree on anything. So when Toast the butterfly suggests they need a leader, the friends try to figure out the best way to pick someone to be in charge. It’s up to Pudding to show his friends that there just might be a way where everyone gets a say. Illustrated by Jill’s regular collaborator EG Keller, the book cleverly underscores the importance of speaking up and using your voice. Everyone Gets a Say is available wherever books are sold.
