Title: I'VE GOT FEET! and MY AUSTRALIA
Post by: JulieM on November 27, 2016, 08:38 PM
I'm delighted that I'VE GOT FEET (Amazing Feet of the Animal World) will be published by Amicus Ink in the USA in fall 2017, and MY AUSTRALIA - a heartfelt poem about the diverse habitats to be found in Australia - has been picked up by the National Library of Australia. Its release as a picture book is planned for 2019. The illustrator is already at work and the roughs look amazing.

I already knew about this, but I wanted to post here for the world to see. CONGRATULATIONS, Jules! These sound like two fabulous books.

By the way, when I read what GILLY'S TREASURES is about (a couple of weeks ago), I tried to order a copy from Amazon, as I thought it was a really worthwhile theme. (And I now have children of the right age in my life.) But the only way I could get it was in the "cloud," which won't work for a kindergartner in New Hampshire. So I'm hoping that this book will eventually be published in book form in the good ole U S of A.

Thanks again. I am happy to say that I have just finalized a contract to a follow-up to I've Got Feet (Fantastical Feet of the Animal World), which comes out this August. I've Got Eyes will be coming our way in 2018. Yippee.
