- ELEPHANT’S STORY by Tracey Campbell Pearson
published by Farrar, Straus, Giroux Fall 2013 ISBN 978-0-374-39913-9
My new book , ELEPHANT’S STORY, published by Margaret Ferguson Books, Farrar Straus Giroux (BYR), will be available in October 2013. I will join him at BEA in NYC. He will still be in F&G form….but he can’t wait to get out into the world. So…off he goes to the big city.
He now has his own book page on my website: http://www.traceycampbellpearson.com/books/elephant.html
Elephant has his own blog!
I will help him post “everything elephant”….starting with images of elephants. I have stumbled upon many since the day I decided to write this book. The blog will have sketches, activities for the book and…well….everything elephant…keep checking.
I will be at the Silent Auction and Sendak Memorial Auction at the Javits Center in NYC. I have two pieces of artwork in the auction:
Gracie reading Where The Wild Things Are to Elephant-original watercolor for The Sendak Memorial at the 19th Annual Children’s Book Silent Auction-Supporting Free Speech Rights for Young Readers May 29 at Book Expo America
Bob Scared digital signed print donated to the 19th Annual Children’s Book Silent Auction-Supporting Free Speech Rights for Young Readers at the 2013 Book Expo America
See my earlier post on April 26th for details: http://tcpearson.wordpress.com/2013/04/26/sendak-memorial-annual-childrens-book-silent-auction-at-bea-2013/
I am including a link to the auction site…a lot of wonderful art has been donated by a group of amazing artists…it is an honor to be part of the event…hope to see you there…if not…they are having an on-line auction as well!
I’m sure I will have lots of new sketches to post when I return from NY….not just subways….but think of all the people arriving at the Javits Center…I can’t wait…I may have to pick up an extra sketchbook on my way into the city!…tcp
