Petunia's a star

Got the word that A Pet for Petunia will receive a starred review in the May issue of the School Library Journal.

An excerpt:

The illustrations leave much white space for Petunia’s personality to soar. The natural, expressive charcoal-rendered lines coupled with accents of purple watercolor (and a bit of complementary orange here and there) suit the story well and add to its sophistication; the typeface is equally expressive. ... the gentle artistry of the skunk, the woods, and the porcupine warm the heart.

earth day

This is an animated video my 13 year old daughter made for Earth Day. I just can't describe how proud I am of her.
