My editor, Neal Porter, likes to kick it Old School. Our new book, Little Tug, has a cloth spine and the cover is paper over board.

International Reading Association Award

When my editor David Saylor and I set out to create WHERE'S WALRUS?, we worried about the response from librarians and educators. Would a wordless book be welcomed into the classroom? The response has been an overwhelming 'yes'! This month, we proudly accepted the IRA's Primary Fiction Award at their annual conference in Chicago.
