I spy my book...at Barnes & Nobles!

I know its not even Thanksgiving yet but stores everywhere are already displaying alot of Christmas items. This weekend, I went to my local Barnes and Nobles and sure enough, they have my new book there! Its called The Great Reindeer Rebellion, written by Lisa Trumbauer and illustrated by yours truly. Its a great companion to The Haunted Ghoul Bus, with the same format and embossed pages, both published by Sterling.

What happens when the reindeers go on strike? Santas and his elves enlist other animals to pull the sleigh for him!
Some interior spreads:

There are some funny and interesting stories I would like to share while working on this book. But I will save that for another post. For now, I just want to officially announce it here that this book is released! You can get it on Amazon or at your local Barnes & Nobles.

Cluck cluck!

Great to see the final art after seeing you working through it. It looks terrific! Only thing is...I want to see larger versions of your spreads! Guess I'll have to find and buy the book! Hee!

PS: There's a children's book store around the corner from here. I'll check and see if it's in their display. If so,I'll take a photo.

Congrats Jannie! How exciting. Love the spread with the elephants. Will definitely treat myself to this one....to go with my copy of the Haunted Ghoul Bus :o)

This is a must buy for us. Miles loves Ghoul Bus - particularly the vampire girl with the heartshaped pupils. The heavier pages are great for little ones too - sturdy enough to not tear. So excited for your placement at B&N! Hooray!!!
