The Cover Story
Actually, my cover story is very straight forward. I have a brilliant editor who chose a brilliant illustrator! When Maria Modugno at Random House Children’s Books read my text, she thought Ben Mantle would be the perfect illustrator. I knew from working on revisions with Maria that she “got” my text and knew what was best for the book.
And boy oh boy! Did she know what was best! Ben’s vision is wonderfully perfect and I can’t wait another minute to share it with you.
Well…maybe long enough for a short intro 🙂
There once was an author who let out a squeal
when the day came around for her cover reveal.
She loves it! Adores it! And can’t wait for you
to love and adore it and squeal along, too!
Are you eyes open wide?
Are you ready to squeal?
What a wonderful day. . .
. . . the cover reveal!
plus one very hungry old
dragon add up to an hilarious
and rollicking tale about a
dragon who just can’t keep his
mouth closed . . . at least not
until he eats almost everything
in the Kingdom!
It’s not polite!
Available August 2015!!!
