Happy World Penguin Day!

I’m celebrating my favorite flightless birds by sharing the cover for my upcoming picture book LOVE, MAMA!

When Mama goes on a trip, her baby penguin Kipling knows she’ll return home soon—yet he still can’t help but miss her. After all, Pillow Mama won’t read, Picture Mama won’t laugh, and Snow Mama is too cold to cuddle.

But when Kipling receives a special delivery from Mama, he knows that no matter where she is, he is always loved. Soon, Mama comes home, and Kipling ends the day where he belongs—right in her arms.

LOVE, MAMA is being published by Roaring Brook Press, and will be in bookstores in early 2018.  I can’t wait to share it with you.

Love, Mama_frontcover_web
