Fresh book deal!

We’ve just inked a fresh book deal with Nimbus Publishing and Vagrant Press for A GREAT BIG NIGHT, a picture book for 4-8 year olds, with the truly amazing Josée Bisaillon on the art. I am all aflutter to start working on this book! As reported by Quill & Quire:

“The book is described as a rhythmic, playful story about three frogs who ride bicycles through the woods, singing and playing instruments for the other animals until a huge storm wins them an unexpected fan…”

Picture books move slow, especially when you’re in line for a talent like Josée. It’s worth the wait! We’ll draw and edit in 2019, with A Great Big Night hitting shelves in fall 2020. As an author, the art of a fated collaborator lands on you in such a delicious way. The match for this story couldn’t be more beautiful. I can’t wait to get started.
