A long wait
This is an early sharing for my fans, who have waited so patiently for another picture book from me. Now there will be 4 coming out in 2015 and 2016! 4 manuscripts sold in 2013 to top editors in NYC, Boston, and London! I'm all over the map and "over the moon". Thank you all for your patience.
This fourth manuscript is the story of Emma who watches her family prepare for a new baby's birth, but doesn't know what to do herself to welcome him, until she realizes the baby can hear sounds. We'll watch Emma share her favorite sounds through the seasons with the baby growing inside her mother. And what a watching it will be with lovely illustrations by popular British illustrator Sophie Allsopp. I'm so happy Tamarind, Random House, UK has chosen her to partner with us in this birth.
