2 new books - Dancing Dreams & Oliver's First Christmas

I have 2 picture books coming out this fall that I illustrated. The first is DANCING DREAMS, to be released in September 2010 by Accord Publishing. In this story, Gracie dreams of dancing everything from ballet to hula to flamenco:



And this one is from OLIVER'S FIRST CHRISTMAS, to be released in October 2010 by Accord Publishing. Here, Oliver the puppy is staying up to wait for Santa (oops - he fell asleep!):
