a new picture book~

 

~ coming this June. Story by the wonderful Shutta Crum, published by Knopf. This was such a fun story to illustrate – toddlers, toys, troubles, triumphs and one puppy. Oh, and there are only two and one half words. And yes, one of the words is MINE!

I was nervous about the guest post… just a skosh. :)

A sweet surprise from my wonderful editor at Alfred A. Knopf arrived yesterday – two copies of Sweet Moon Baby. Oh my goodness, I’m so excited!

It’s an absolutely lovely adoption tale written by Karen Henry Clark. Illustrating it was a gift indeed!

The release date is November 9, 2010. Easy for me to remember – it’s my son’s birthday! :)
