New Picture Book - Five Hungry Mice

Great News!

It's finally ready!  After taking the summer to finish the artwork, (explains my absence from my blog) and working with my publisher this fall, we finally have Five Hungry Mice ready to go to press!  My publisher and her book designer have done a fantastic job making my adorable mice look so beautiful in book format.  It really looks fantastic and I can't wait for you all to see it in person. 

It will be officially published and in stores in early 2018, but I have access to pre-published copies beginning in November for my followers who have been so patiently waiting!  Just in time for National Picture Book Month.  I will be selling the book and my other artwork at the following art shows:
