What is Harper whispering to Willa Bean? You'll have to read the book to find out!

I just received my illustrator copies of a new series of chapter books by Cecilia Galante I'm illustrating for Random House called Little Wings. They just came out and are super adorable. Check them out!


Last week I visited NYC to meet my editors and art directors at Random House, to meet my agent (Linda Pratt) and a few more publishers, to visit my brother, and to go to the big SCBWI Winter Conference with over 1100 attendees. What an amazing week! Random House even invited me to draw on their illustrator wall alongside some incredible illustrators - I totally geeked out.
"Really? Really? I can draw on your wall? Are you sure? These are all massively famous illustrators!"
I drew my dancing penguins from my upcoming picture book, PENGUIN CHA-CHA. Here I am with my editor for PENGUIN CHA-CHA and my dancing penguins on the wall next to Babymouse and Duck & Goose:
