surprise!


I received this surprise in the mail a couple of days ago--my new book!!  (not TOTALLY mine, but you know what I mean)  I illustrated over a dozen poems for this anthology compiled by Bill Martin Jr., published by Simon & Schuster.  Words cannot explain my thrill and excitement finding my paintings across the gutter from Chris Raschka and Dan Yaccarino, two of my illustration heroes.  The book turned out so beautifully, a real treasure for me.
