I’m QUivering with excitement to finally announce to you my third picture book! Q AND U CALL IT QUITS is set to release Summer 2021, published by HarperCollins, with Jorge Martin illustrating. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Karen Chaplin at HarperCollins and to see my words come to life through the magic of Jorge Martin.
Q AND U CALL IT QUITS is a story of two good friends, Q&U. When U gets sick of Q being needy, she sets off for some alone time. When the other letter blends catch wind of the split, they begin to drift apart, creating chaos and confusion. How can the words be spelled without the letter blends?
This story has no lack of puns and silly humor, but also helps teach children about letter blend sounds through the theme of teamwork.
I’m so excited to be working with Jorge Martin. He has illustrated a family favorite of ours, LITTLE TACO TRUCK, along with FAIRY TALE PETS, and various other children’s titles. His illustrations are whimsical and colorful and I know he is going to knock it out of the park with our friends Q and U. You can check out his work here.
I’ll have more information in the future. Thanks for coming along on this ride with me. I feel blessed to continue on this exciting path doing what I love the most!
