Amy! congratulations! the book looks super sweet with your illustrations, AND it sounds like a fun book. we read in some book once that morning time is best to water gardens because something happens when birds sing--it triggers plants to drink! i love that. anyway, i'm happy for you and smiling at seeing the sneak peak. can't wait to get it. xojenny

Thanks! I am excited... I haven't seen the actual copies yet.... it is always great to see the finished product with the story line attached to the drawings. Books are so collaborative, I love that.

(blushing) Oh dear... this isn't FROM the 50's, it's just charming and a bit retro (not to mention European). Bravo. Love it.
