Book Launch for WILLIAM AND THE WITCH’S RIDDLE

Book Launch for WILLIAM AND THE WITCH’S RIDDLE

Along with my friend Kristin Lenz I’ll be celebrating the birth of a new book. I’ll launch William and the Witch’s Riddle (published by Alfred A. Knopf, and illustrated by Lee Wildish). And Kristin will launch her new book The Art of Holding On and Letting Go (Elephant Rock Books).  There’ll be refreshments and prizes, as well!

Uh-Oh! illustrated by the hugely talented Patrice Barton (published by Alfred A. Knopf) will be released on April 14th. The first early reviews are starting to come out. And Kirkus Reviews (Thank you!)  says: “Though there are as many ‘Uh-oh’ books out there as there are fishies in the sea, this petite charmer is a fine addition to the beach-time shelf.” And I love what they have to say about Patrice’s illustrations:  “Barton’s pencil sketches give the storytelling its heart, her two heroes perpetually wide-eyed, and the occasional jolt of realism . . . is as bracing as the sea air.”

MINE! was also illustrated by Patrice. I am so pleased to, soon, have another book out with this wonderful artist. Just look at that cover! You can pre-order now, and the book should appear in bookstores on April 14th.

 

Happy dancing,
