My new picture book came out in stores yesterday! I am presently soaking in the hot springs on a much needed vacation en route to my first bookstore event.

I have events planned in Taos, Santa Fe, Durango, Boulder, Denver, Kansas City, Omaha, St. Louis and NYC, and I would LOVE to see you! Bring your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, little friends, or simply YOU.

If you’d like your very own copy and you live in one of these cities, I think it’s REALLY groovy to support your LOCAL, independent bookseller! :)

Come celebrate with me! Masala chai for all! And please spread the fun — Share with anyone you know who lives in these cities!!
