Hooray for spring! Hooray for picture books!!






































I'm very excited to share that I will be illustrating my second picture book!

The story, which is by Linda Ashman, is called "MORE!" and will be published by Random House in fall of 2015.  I really love this manuscript and am over the moon to be a part of this project!  Linda has written many wonderful books and you can see some of them here.  Hooray!!!
