My upcoming picture book, A GRAND DAY (from Samantha Cotterill, Paula Wiseman Books/Simon & Schuster and me!) celebrating the special bond between grandchildren and grandparents in every kind of family, comes out on July 5th. I can’t wait. And while I’ve not yet received my author copies, I have had some lovely sneak peeks at this beautiful book. I’m happy to share them with you.
The first are a few spreads from the F&Gs (the folded and gathered review copies). And as you can see Samantha Cotterill’s 3-D art is amazing. Check out those adorable details! I’d love to live inside these pages.
Then, a few weeks ago, a surprise package arrived from Samantha. It contained not only a copy of her beautiful collaboration with my friend Elaine Vickers, THANKFUL, but also this tiny, constructed painting from one of the 3-D “sets” from the book. I was over the moon to receive this very special gift.
Samantha Cotterill’s work makes me swoon!
But in addition to these peeks from the book, I have other “grand day” news. Right about the same time that A GRAND DAY comes out (July 5th) my 5th grandchild is due! The timing is stupendous and serendipitous and miraculous. July can’t come soon enough!
