March 25, 2015Curious about how a picture book is created? Check out my series of posts about the creation of I'M BORED, NAKED! and WHERE ARE MY BOOKS?
Lots of sketches and photos!
June 12, 2014I'm delighted to announce that NAKED! is now available in bookstores. I also went on my very first book tour and finally got to meet Michael Ian Black (the author of I'M BORED and NAKED!) in person. Had sooooo much fun talking to young readers. And wow, do kindergarteners love yelling "Naked!" :-)
