A Sneak Peek at Please Bring Balloons!

I am so excited to be able to release some images from Please Bring Balloons, including the cover (yay!), which will arrive in stores on OCTOBER 17, 2013!  And I absolutely cannot wait!!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!

Please Bring Balloons (Cover)
A Dial Book for Young Readers

"Emma has never heard of carousel animals leaving notes before,
but she decides to take this one seriously.
And it's a good thing she does.
Soon, she and her polar bear friend are soaring to the Arctic,
where carousel bears from near and far dance beneath
a sparkling night sky.  It's a perfect adventure.
Afterward, Emma can hardly believe it really happened.
(But it did!)

For anyone who has ever imagined what it would be like to ride
a carousel animal right off its platform,
this enchanting story is your chance.

Happy Travels!"
