Nerdy-chopped

I’m proud to be a member of the Nerdy Book Club. You may be a member too, and not even know it…

To see the rest of this banner and its band of readers, head on over to the club’s brand-new site! I’m truly honored that my artwork now greets the enthusiastic, generous, and openhearted readers who congregate there.

    Twinkle, Twinkle…

    … the chicken is seeing stars!

    “Breathtakingly beautiful meta-illustrations will draw many eyes to this tale of a curious chicken who spills some paint… Delicate and durable, visually sophisticated yet friendly: simply exquisite.” 
    – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

    “The spare, poetic text allows the images to shine… this delightful treat emphasizes the joy of breaking free of conventional boundaries and turning accidents into art.”
    Booklist, starred review

    “Full of surprise and emotion… The book has much to pore over on every page, and children will want to experience the action over and over again.” 
    – School Library Journal, starred review
