Absolutely thrilled with this lovely review from Kirkus for my next kids book, THE SHELTERLINGS! Holly would be SO happy to be referred to as an impressive rodent hero!

Where Ideas Come From

This is a weasel riding a woodpecker (photo by Martin Le-May). 

And below is the cover for my next MG novel for kids, THE SHELTERLINGS (coming in June from HarperCollins / Clarion Books), in case you ever wondered where ideas come from.

Granted, in the photo, things aren't going well for the woodpecker, whereas in THE SHELTERLINGS, Holly (the squirrel) and Gus (the owl) are best friends. Then again, the woodpecker and weasel probably aren't about to meet a dragon...
