Interviewed by Wendy Martin Illustration

I did an interview with the lovely Wendy Martin. We talk about inspiration, technique, and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. (OK we didn't really talk about that. But it is yummy.) Thanks for making me look good Wendy!

Vote for JUMP! 2013

EDIT 3/20/13 Thanks to your votes 'Jump!' will be leaping back in boxes of Cheerios in 2014! And even cooler, tons of books will be donated to kids who need them! thanks to Cheerios, First Book and Simon and Schuster for thinking kids books are a better prize than a plastic trinket! (Though I do love a good plastic trinket!)

Can I be so lucky as to have one of my books be a prize in Cheerios boxes for a second time? Yes! With your help. Cheerios has selected 5 books (that have all been in Cheerios boxes before) and one of the five will leap back into boxes of crunchy goodness in 2014! You can help get 'JUMP!' back in the box with two clicks. BUT even cooler. The folks at Cheerios and First Book will donate one book to a child in need for the first 25000 votes! That is awesometastic!

Even if you don't vote for 'JUMP!' please vote to get a cool book into the hands of a cool kid somewhere! Voting ends March 11 2013 that is like in two days! So vote here, quick! 

Vote for JUMP!

 And in celebration, I thought I would share the ORIGINAL book dummy for 'Jump!'. If you know the published version, yo can see how major the evolution was. Third graders prefer this version 10 to 1, but the book was really for toddlers, and most of them prefer the printed version. Cause, you know, sharks are scary (Unless you give them one tooth. That is the secret!)

Here are a couple spreads from the printed version!
