This is the color coordinated line-up for Saturday's visit to KidsBooks in Vancouver, B.C. My new books from 2017 (more to come.) This color thing was not on purpose- guess my favorite color. I'll be there from 2 -4 with the awesomely talented Ashley Spires. We haven't met yet - so this will be fun!

FUN FOR EVERYONE!
What do you do if your book is released on January 3, 2017? First you go,"AAHHHH! WHY COULDN'T THEY GET THE BOOK ON THE SHELF BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS?" Then, after you've calmed down (note: coffee does not help you do this) you start thinking creatively. My brain loves a challenge. It doesn't always come up with the right solution, but hey, I try. So here is my BIG Idea.
There are 10 days between Dec. 25th and Jan. 3rd so ...
...I made this for you. Ten FREE pennants to color and decorate. Wrap them up with some string and a box of markers (I like the brush tips.) It's something to do until the book arrives, plus did I say SUPER CUTE? Yup, these banners are super cute!
I colored this one as a sample for you. Nice right? Just click below and download your own set. You don't have to buy my book... but if you want to, that would make me smile!
I love many things; almonds, potato chips (the salt and pepper ones,) metal furniture, old signs ...oh and the list could go on, but my number one favorite is always COMICS! So, I am happy to introduce you to Book & Me. Graciously hosted by The Horn Book.
