Just completed two picture book projects. SKYCAT is a humorous story about a farmer whose cat suddenly decides to fly. After many failed attempts to get the cat down, he and his dog come up with an ingenious plan. THIS LITTLE TURTLE is a take-off on "This little piggy went to market." It follows a young sea turtle from birth to her eventual return to the same beach in order to lay her own eggs. The story has a conservationists perspective, and I think it would fit in quite nicely with the elementary education's common core standards.

Sadly, Henry Holt has decided not to continue EGGS OVER EVIE as a series. My editor is eager to see PLAYING BY THE NUMBERS, however, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. In the meantime, I am working on two picture book projects: SKYCAT about a farmer whose cat suddenly decides to fly, and THIS LITTLE TURTLE, a factual take-off on "This little Piggy" that follows the migration of sea turtles.
