Book announcements are great fun. But as an author, I'm essentially limited to a palette of plain text. Illustrators, on the other hand...
To wit, I wandered over to Lost illustrator Jessica Lanan's website to admire her incredible art, and was delighted to find her announcement of our book... along with a sketch. And yeah, I'm pretty sure I just fell in love with a cardboard box.
Check out the announcement and the rest of her website here, and be sure to pre-order her upcoming book, Just Right: Searching for the Goldilocks Planet. A picture book about exoplanets? Sign me up!
