Today's Parent (Canada)

I have some illustrations in the May issue of Today's Parent on news stands now - fun job, good people to work with. I wish I had a helmet like this!

I can't keep quiet about this!

Number 5 on The New York Times bestseller list!

It's unbelievable, something that happens to other artists.

You would think that illustrating a book is a solitary pursuit, but it's thanks to a whole lot of people.

Thanks to Deborah for words full of imagination.
Thanks to everybody at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt who made it possible.
Thanks to the booksellers for supporting it.
Thanks to all the bloggers and such who have posted about it.
And a super big thanks to all the readers who made it a NY Times Bestseller!

Oh, and I can't forget my family and friends, Thanks to you most of all!

I can't believe my eyes

I am pretty excited about the reception The Quiet Book has received so far and it isn't actually released until next week.
It has been picked as one of the 'Best of April' books on And even reached #35 in books today (#5 in children's books). Wow!

I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to illustrate this book and enjoyed doing it immensely - I hope readers will enjoy it too!

Best of April

Happy Easter!

Easter egg hunts wasn't something we did when I was growing up, but it sounds like fun.
