Prepare Thyselves for Cuteness Overload

Oh, blog readers.

I try not to overwhelm. I seek to space out the cuteness over a period of days.

But it just didn’t work this time, and so you must brace thyselves for a one-two punch.

Edgar_front[1] (2)First up, the unspeakably adorable cover of my 2014 picture book, Edgar’s Second Word, illustrated to perfection by the great Priscilla Burris.

I did not overstate the cuteness, right? And if you could just see the spreads inside! The book’s not out until June, like almost a year away, but THE CUTENESS!!!!

And tomorrow, an interview on the very day of their picture book’s release with writer-illustrator, wife-husband team Lenore Appelhans and Daniel Jennewein. The book is called Chick-O-Saurus Rex and, as you may have guessed, it’s very, very cute.

Don’t forget to come back tomorrow!

  1. You did not overstate the cuteness. I love the title. But you know it begs the question…..what was his first word? But then I imagine that’s the point of the book?

      My sisters and I, who used this in just about every book report we each had to write while students at PS 184 Queens, still say to each other, in a sing-song voice, “If you want to know more, read the book to find out.” I wish you could hear the voice–it’s uniquely obnoxious.

    Oh, how utterly adorable! When is the release day? Hmmm…. this makes me wonder will I have a cover to look at soon? My first book is due out in August 2014.
