The squirrels must know. They taunt me.
It rained all morning. The squirrels squatted plumply on the grass, nibbling nuts and holding their thick, fluffy tails over their heads like umbrellas. “How cute!” I thought, and raced for my camera. Alas…
But these speedsters can’t compare to the cute squirrel rendered at the pen of illustrator Kasia Nowowiejska. Just wait until you see!
The other character in the book is a moose.
I am still waiting patiently for a moose to
appear in the yard. Will I have a better chance of snapping a moose photo? I may not need the telephoto lens…
Until I can officially share more details about When A Tree Grows, you’ll have to pen its official release date – April 2, 2019 – onto your calendars!
In the meantime, I’ll be thinking about writing future picture books with s..l..o..w but still photogenic subjects. Stay tuned!
