Cover Reveal for EVEN AND ODD!

COVER REVEAL!!! I am absolutely in love with the cover for my next book for kids, EVEN AND ODD! The art is by the amazing Brandon Dorman, and the book (coming June 2021 from Clarion Books / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is about two sisters who can work magic but only on alternating days.

When the hidden border between the mundane world the sisters live in and the magical land they were born in shuts abruptly, Even and her sister Odd must find a way to reunite their worlds -- with the help of a unicorn named Jeremy.
