under the egg

 photo underegg_blog1_zpse9676162.jpg also out this week is under the egg by laura marx fitzgerald, published by dial books for young readers (penguin group). on saturday i went to a middle grade authors panel at books of wonder, a beautiful children's bookstore in new york city, to meet laura and hear her speak about her debut novel. aaron starmer was also on the panel; it's pure coincidence that i illustrated the covers of two of the three featured books, and it was pretty cool to see this as soon as i entered the store:

These covers are lovely! I especially love all the twining branches and ferns on The Riverman.

PS: I love that you work with Nancy C.! She is a gem. What a small world!
