Elephant and Gracie have been having fun visiting bookstores and reading to kids…(no monkeys….yet!)

Thanks to all of the amazing independent booksellers we’re meeting in our travels.
Not only are they passionate about books…they don’t even blink when I bring an elephant into their stores!

The Brooks Memorial Library has a show of artwork from children’s book illustrators that changes every couple of months. It’s a great opportunity to see how different the process of making a picture book is for each illustrator.The show changes every couple of months.

The release date for my new book ELEPHANT’S STORY (Margaret Ferguson Books by Farrar Straus Giroux BYR) is October. 22nd. But you can get a sneak peek and see my process…if you can’t get to Brattleboro, VT….here’s a link to pictures from the show onElephant’s Blog:

Elephant and Gracie are excited to be taking part in the Original Art Show at The Society of Illustrators in NY.

They are thrilled to be surrounded by wonderful art by wonderful artists in a wonderful show….cool.

Although there is the “Elephant in the room” concern…but maybe there will be more elephants…they can have an elephant party!

It’s a great show of original children’s book art…hope to see you there!….tcp

“The Original Art: Celebrating the Fine Art of Children’s Book Illustration is on display at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators from October 23 through December 21, 2013. Founded in 1980 by artist’s agent Dilys Evans, this exhibit showcases the year’s best children’s books.  For editors and art directors, it is an inspiration and a treasure trove of talent to draw upon. For art students, it is a marvelous opportunity to examine—up close—the work of the best in the field. And for the public, it is a chance to appreciate the enormous range of creativity in children’s books and to see both the printed pages and the original paintings, drawings, prints, and collages they represent.”
