Turkeys Gobbling

Frog Song Pond is so gorgeous right now!

It has been a glorious Autumn here, with colors that make me giddy. Since I always work on book pages out of sequence anyway, making the seasonly matching illustrations right now seems like a good idea. Here's a rather poor snapshot of a piece from Gobble, Gobble, which I mentioned a few posts ago.

Pond Babies Swimming

The completed artwork for Pond Babies has been delivered to the art director's clever hands at Downeast Books. Editor Michael Steere seemed surprised to have everything arrive two months ahead of deadline.

Kirsten Cappy from Curious City checked out the book before it fluttered up to Rockland, Maine. Pond Babies, and the book by the same title, will be out next spring.
