I met today’s Will Write for Cookies guest a couple of years ago…Tootie and I connected in some of the online kid-lit groups…and I had a chance to take a look at a wonderful manuscript she was working on – about a courageous girl who thought differently and decided that skateboarding was what she wanted to do, no matter what anyone said. You can imagine how thrilled I am to see that story roll into bookstores in just a few days!
Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends! One of my favorite books to review is a book written by a friend…and I also love it when a manuscript I saw early on becomes a real book. So, when those two elements align, I’m totally dancing with joy. And that’s what is happening this weekend! I’m so happy for debut picture book author Tootie Nienow – and I’m tickled pink to share her fabulous book with you today…and to sit down and chat with her tomorrow when she joins us for Will Write for Cookies. Please don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the blogpost and share this on your social media for tickets in the giveaway of a copy of THERE GOES PATTI MCGEE!
