This newsletter is a day late this month because I'm technically on vacation. We tried a "staycation" with mixed results, but I did stick to my plan of not working. I decided putting together a quick newsletter was OK, though.

I finally have some news about the Petunia sequel... it is waiting on the illustrator to be available. I am also working on finding a publisher for the other completed story I have. Xist (the company that published my first two books) is focusing on chapter books right now. I've identified publishers that might be a match, and will be working on some submission letters soon. Those are nowhere near as much fun to write as the stories are, so I also treated myself to some time working on my next story. 

But enough about me... on to the books I shared on the blog this month!

This is an action-packed chapter book about a monster that escapes from an ancient mudball into modern England, and the efforts of a couple of kids and one seriously cool Artifacts Inspector to recapture it. The characters in this story are diverse- the kids are Asian, the Artifacts Inspector is African, and the lead character Jin has dyspraxia- but this never feels forced, and in fact is often quite integrated with the plot.

A Mammoth in the Fridge, by Michaël Escoffier and Matthieu Maudet
