BOOM! -is released this week by Disney

My most recent illustrated children's picture book, BOOM! (written by Mary Lyn Ray/published by Disney's Hyperion Books) will be released tomorrow.

It's a comfort story, of a brave little dog (Rosie) who isn't afraid of anything in her daily life, that is except for thunder and lightning! Last weekend the New York Times Book Review reviewed the book, along with three other picture book titles also having a 'rain' or 'storm' theme. This is my first book for Disney.

Here is the link to the book review.

And here is the link to my previous post on the making of the illustrations for BOOM!
