The Simples Love a Picnic, April 2014, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

 

I’m very excited to introduce my new picture book, THE SIMPLES LOVE A PICNIC, due out April 2014.

It’s the fun, silly story of the Simple family who want to have a nice, simple picnic.  But every thing that can go wrong, simply does!

It’s very bright, energetic, and most of all, silly.  It will appeal to kids who love humor in their books.

This is also my first book with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, so I want to give a BIG THANKS to Margaret Raymo, the editor on this project, and Rebecca Bond, the art director.  They both did such a fabulous job guiding this project and it was a pleasure to work with them both!

I can’t wait for Spring!
