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!
