I am so pleased to announce the release of my latest picture book--and my first book for Disney Press--on Tuesday October 1.
A SISTER MORE LIKE ME is a tie-in book for the new Disney animated feature FROZEN, inspired by the Snow Queen fairy tale. The movie releases Thanksgiving weekend.
Wherever you are, raise a glass with me on Tuesday! If you're in the Bellingham WA area, send me a message and I'll tell you where we're meeting up to celebrate in person.
Being approached by Disney out of the blue to write this book and then being invited to write a second tie-in to be released when the DVD of FROZEN comes out next year is a highlight of my children's writing career. Perhaps the very best part was finding out that the editor who contacted me is a fan of one of my earlier picture books, THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER KITTY, and that's the reason I got this gig.
I haven't yet received advance copies, so I'm hoping the entire book looks as good as the picture of the cover. Brittney Lee is an amazing illustrator and one of the animators for the film. I couldn't be more pleased to have been paired with her.
