MELVIN is Official!

I am thrilled to announce that I will be working on my first "Authored" picture book with Laura Godwin at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers! The working title is MELVIN, and it involves a boy and a turtle -- Melvin is the turtle. It isn't due out till Fall 2010 (!), though I will be sure to share more as the project progresses...

BRAVO! BRAVA, I mean. Bravo for Melvin (I presume), and brava for you! I can't wait to see it. 2010 still sounds like science fiction to me, but I can't wait anyway. Congratulations!

Congratulations, Lauren. I also have a book with Holt coming out in 2010. Yes, it is too far away!!

cheers!

I agree: That sounds so far away. But I can't wait to see it. Love this illustration.

The interview was entirely our pleasure.

Congrats, L-Cast! That's wonderful news... I assume the turtle will be a reptilian metaphor reflecting your id, right?
