Congratulations Anne Marie! How awesome!

A couple weeks ago, I was digging through some of my old school stuff and found the "book" I wrote and illustrated in Grade Two (I'm a late bloomer). Maybe I should look into giving it a rewrite?  ;)

That's pretty much what I did.  When I started writing picture books, I thought that kids of picture book age might like the same topics as I did at that age, and of course, wouldn't I have written about things I liked?  It took me ten years to get it right, however.

I mostly love that you were thinking of words like PIGLOO in first grade. Congrats! Can't wait to see this one! Your school visits will be amazing.

(Did you sell it in December and wait until now for the announcement? I'm always curious about the hows and whys of those timelines.)

Haven't you figured out we're sisters, Ellen?  ;)

Carter, the title came about five years ago.  The story was in first grade.  But thanks!

I think the sale was in October, the contract came in December, and then we waited for the illustrator. 

Some people announce before the contracts are signed but my agent doesn't.
