So, my editor-friend will likely have my early reader book back to me soon. It’s almost summer and her primary gig as a stay-at-home Mom is going to be ramping up soon.

I am planning for black and white drawings for “in chapter” illustrations and colorful paintings as “end tags” to each chapter. Here’s the first one I’ve finished.
