Cover Reveal for A MORNING WITH GRANDPA!



How exciting is this?

My debut picture book, A MORNING WITH GRANDPA, illustrated by the talented Christina Forshay, will be published by Lee and Low Books in May 2016.

It's available for preorder it at  AmazonBarnes and NobleIndiebound, or your local bookseller.
