Just send another manuscript to my editor at Henry Holt. Entitled THE WIDE AWAKE PRINCESS, it is the story of a fairy tale princess who refuses to sleep. The king and queen send for help, and it arrives in the form of all the king's horses and men, Little Bo Peep, and Little Jack Horner among others. In the end, a mysterious old woman arrives with a crafty solution...

I have finished my manuscript submissions for the time being:
DOG SCENTS to Groundwood
EXTRA EXTRA to Bailiwick
HOLES ALL AROUND to Ripple Grove
FAMILY IN A JAR to Albert Whitman
WELCOME TO THE VELVET ARMS to On Stage
In the meantime I am working on a new picture book entitled THE WIDE AWAKE PRINCESS, about a fairy tale princess who refuses to go to bed. Her parents, Old King Cole and the Queen of Hearts invite other nursery rhyme characters to help, including All the King's Horses and All the King's Men, Little Jack Horner and Little Bo Peep. Mother Goose finally arrives with the perfect solution!

Only eight more to send!
