So disappointed to hear that, Verla! It seems that it's getting more and more common for books to go out of print after just a couple of years. Try not to be too discouraged.   :hug

Hugs, Verla. I just checked and our library has 10 copies of your book.
BOOOOOOO.  :smokhead: :cry2 I made sure our local library has a copy. If all our local libraries have one it will live on!  :flowers2
Holding a good thought for you to get the rights reverted.

Verla,

Twelve years is nothing to sneeze at, my friend!  Be very proud your first born stayed afloat for such a marvelously long time. That is an amazing statement for the enduring quality of your story and the love your publisher has had in it!

Still, here's a :cupcake.

A great book. You know I understand how hard it is to have a book go out of print. But you never know--someday you may find a way to get all OOP picture books back in print.
