busy, busy

Several exciting bits of news this week.

I finished up the art for my fourth self-authored book, Percy's Big Idea. It should be in the book stores by fall of 2012.

The big brown truck delivered the proofs for my January 2012 release, Petunia Goes Wild, and it looks really great, many thanks to the fantastic designer Dana Fritts.

Barnes & Noble has made plans to release enhanced e-book editions of both A Pet for Petunia and Petunia Goes Wild on their color Nook.

Paul, I have a pet skunk named Petunia! A friend of mine gave me your book for my birthday! I'm a first grade teacher and we all can't get over how big of a coincidence your book is to my life! We live in Greenville, SC and Petunia has been featured in the news several times! Her 'color' is purple! I've had her since she was a baby and she IS de-scented, so my kids crack up on the page where the skunk sprays! It is such a wonderful and relatable story for children. And if it could be any more wild, my family bottle-raised a porcupine when I was 10! Deedie Padilla

Thanks everyone! Deedie, your story is so fun, I've heard that skunks really do make great pets. My own daughter is now campaigning for a pet ferret. And a dog and a budgie and chickens...
