Hello, and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Donna at Mainely Write for Roundup.
On the 3rd of every month I'm honored to blog over at Smack Dab in the Middle, a blog written by a group of amazing middle grade authors. This month's theme is "setting," so I wrote a little something about one of my two poetry books coming next spring:
WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON ANTARCTICA: And Other Poems from the Frozen Continent, with illustrations by Anna Wadham.
This is our follow-up to DEAR WANDERING WILDEBEEST: And Other Poems from the Water Hole. Head on over to Smack Dab to find out what inspired me to write the new collection!
And speaking of inspiring settings... here's the cover of my other spring 2016 book:
FRESH DELICIOUS: Poems from the Farmers' Market, with illustrations by Mique Moriuchi. This one is for a younger audience, and just looking at this cover makes me happy. I love love love fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers' market -- and I had so much fun writing these poems (and recipes!).
Look for both books next spring! Meanwhile, Happy July!!! Bring on the BBQ. :)
