…and Another Book Announcement: A Kid of Their Own

I have been keeping another picture book under wraps over here. I’m happy to announce that I’m also illustrating a picture book titled A Kid of Their Own, by Megan Dowd Lambert (coming from Charlesbridge in 2019.) A Kid of Their Own is the second book in the series starring Clyde, the likable (if scrawny) rooster, following A Crow of His Own (2015.) The text is charming and will especially appeal older siblings who might be feeling jealous of a new member of the family. I can’t wait to bring Clyde and the rest of the barnyard animals to life. Here’s a quick character study. More to come!
