Introducing SYLVIE!

I’m thrilled to introduce you to my latest picture book!

  “Sylvie hung on a silvery thread from the rusty underside of a fire escape. And though it was dark and damp and disturbingly close to the dumpster, that hideout was home to Sylvie because, you see, not everyone appreciates a spider who calls attention to herself.” 

From the creators of Truman comes a story of courage, community, friendship and one small spider with a big, bold heart.

From Simon & Schuster/Atheneum

ADVANCE PRAISE

“Young readers will enjoy meeting a new small-but-mighty (and spidery) protagonist in this welcome return to the world of Truman, featuring a cameo from the tortoise himself. Laced with lovely alliteration and internal rhyme, the text introduces young listeners to the whimsy of language at storytime … Sylvie’s bubbly effervescence shows readers that it is well worth the
courage it takes to be seen.”

– Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books –

“(A) warming story about the necessity of
connection and community.”
