The only thing better than getting your debut book published is finding out you get to do it again. I’m so happy to announce that I’ll be making another book with the amazingly talented (and all-around nicest person in the universe) Corinna Luyken! Hooray! Here’s the official announcement. As you can probably imagine after reading it, this book was inspired by some not so pleasant real-life events.
You might also notice the book isn’t scheduled to come out until 2021! In picture-book land, that’s not actually so far away, but it does feel like forever. Corinna is just so darn popular that we need to wait in line to get on her schedule! (Seriously, though, my first picture book took two years from the sale of the manuscript to the publication date, and that was FAST!)
Last week, I had the opportunity to meet Rotem and a lot of others on the Disney-Hyperion team, and let me tell you, they are a fun, talented bunch. I stopped into their library (of books they’ve published) and couldn’t resist attempting to do the Belle (from Beauty and the Beast) ladder slide. Didn’t work out so well, but I had fun!
