It’s almost time!

Half time, that is. Hmm, that doesn’t sound quite right.

Let’s start again. It’s almost here…the moment so many of you have been waiting for. And by “so many” I mean my Mom.

Hi Mom!

What I mean to say is…my next book is almost on the shelves. YIPPPEEEE!

Please welcome Half A Giraffe? to my lineup of picture books. Coming to all good booksellers in the grand ol’ United States (and probably to an online retailer that is named after a really long River [not the Nile] or perhaps a tribe of kick-butt women. You know what I’m saying’…) in September 2018!

Here’s a lovely picture of 1/2 giraffes drawn by some lovely children from a lovely book fair I went to in Maine.

 

The *real* Gisele was drawn by Richard Smythe, an artist/illustrator here in England. Many kudos to him for such a sweet portrayal of a little giraffe who longs to be just half a head taller.

If you’ve ever wished to be a teensy bit stronger or a wee bit faster or a smidge different from who you are, this book’s for you.

Enjoy it folks!

(Except you guys in England. for some reason it’s not on sale there yet. But nevermind!)

Look at this beautiful page! The face on this donkey is just priceless, don’t you think! And this one is one of my favorites:

(But don’t even get me started on the number of words there are in the English language that mean the same as “fart”! Parp, pop, toot, wind, gas… shall I go on?)

Sometimes I love my job.
