New Arrivals, Part 1



Hooray! I recently received a box full of my very first board book! I'm so excited that Alice Schertle's Very Hairy Bear (2007) will now be ambling about in a sturdy, well-nigh indestructible form. It is a full version of the original, a great size, and the reproduction is terrific.

The folks at Harcourt have impeccable timing. Here's what arrived the day before...

Ohhh my gosh!! That is so fantastic. Look at that precious baby Matt... BIG congratulations!! That is the best feeling in the world! Awww... :oD

Having said that, congrats on the second best feeling in the world and that is getting your complimentary copies!

I love board books. To hold them. Read them, buy them and specially to illustrate them. They are the most fun books to work on.

A board book by you must be dreamy and wonderful. I can't wait to get my own copy. :o)
