I'm very happy to announce that I will have a new book on the market soon. It's to be published by Simon&Schuster under the direction of Paula Wiseman. The publication date has not been determined, but the illustrator is Eric Comstock, who is busily working away as we speak. The book is a story in rhyme about some little shapes that get tangled up in a jungle gym. The entire geometric community community comes to the rescue. Looking forward with great anticipation to this book which will be a fun read at home or in school.
We have just relaunched a better version of Night Songs on Kindle, and a new print-on-demand version of Alphabet Fiesta! Now that we have figured out how to do this, we will be producing original new works via CreateSpace.
My very talented designer/illustrator son, Tyler will be doing the book design and helping with the illustrations. Our first joint project will be Who Needs Mosquitos, which we will do in cut paper collage.
Free international shipping offered until April 12th from Society 6. I got a shower curtain the last time this offer was made...and I just LOVE it. This is now hanging in my bathroom to my delight and rapture. The quality of the material and the printing is topnotch!

The post of the katydid poem was well received, so I decide to make it available as a poster.
Many thanks to all those who responded favorably!
For a very limited time, my designs on Society 6 qualify for free international shipping. Follow this link to take advantage of the great deal. I bought a shower curtain with this image on it and I can't wait to hang it up in my bathroom! This particular piece of art was shown many years ago at the Society of Illustrator's Show in New York and is a favorite of mine. After this long winter, I wish I could swim away to this island and play with the turtles!
Katydid the cooking,
Katydid the shopping,
Katydid the laundry,
Katydid the mopping,
Katydid the dishes,
Katydid the floor,
When Katy put her foot down,
Behold the humble bumblebee,
that buzzeth on the wing.
Thou dost not look so dangerous!
Oh, bee, where is thy sting?
Me thinks I’ve questioned hastily,
for at me thou art bound,
to pricketh me with sting unsheathed,
to prove where it be found.Read More
