This weekend is the official launch for my new picture book
with Helen Frost, Sweep Up the Sun.

The cover image is below, and I’ll share more images from
the book soon.

We’ll have a book signing and exhibition at Book Beat this Saturday,
February 28, from 1-4 and a signing and presentation on Sunday,
March 1 as part of “Read in the Park” at Berkley High School.

Here’s the website with all the news, reviews and up-to-date information
for the book: BugDreams.com/sweep/.
