Welcome Magical Monty!!

I'm thrilled to announce Magical Monty comes out in stores today!!

It's the 4th and final book of the Monty series written by Johanna Hurwitz, published by Candlewick Press and illustrated by me.
I've known Monty for quite a while now and I'm a little sad he's graduating from first grade.

When we first met my oldest little boy was just starting first grade (just like Monty in Mighty Monty book 1), and now my middle girl is just finishing 1st grade (just like Monty in Magical Monty book 4). 

We've been through some milestones together with my kids crazy about reading and losing teeth and having pet parakeets and baby sisters! Just like Monty.

It's been designated A Junior Library Guild Selection for Spring 2012.

Three Questions

These are the three questions my 7 year old asked in the last 20 minutes of our 4 hour Memorial Day weekend road trip...

1. How do we know there really is heaven and hell?

2. Where did people get language?

3. What really is space and where did it come from?
