Release Date Scheduled

My next picture book to come out is called, "The Happiest Mommy Ever!" by Alice Furniss. It's published by Deseret Book and is their Mother's Day Picture Book for 2009. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The release date is April 1, 2009. That's plenty of time for you to buy one for your own mom before the May Mother's Day. Here's the cover and one of the interior spreads.


  1. I really love the added graphical elements. The stripes and little dot motif and the swirly elements on the inside. They are just perfect for you wonderful illustrations.


  2. Thanks, Sherry. I needed a way to delineate present time from past, so I decided to make the past more scrapbook page like. That carried over into the cover. Then I left it to the designer to add the type of course.

  3. You did a really great job! I can't wait for it to come out! My kids will love it!
