REALLY Groovy!!!

It's springtime. Easter was yesterday. And that means bunnies. Or rabbits. Or hares. Or whatever you prefer to call the cute, furry, long-eared creatures which abound in the spring. It also means that Albert Whitman & Company's Spring Catalogue was recently released. And included in said catalogue is the picture book "The Really Groovy Story of the Tortoise and the Hare", illustrated by me!

Written by Kristyn Crow, it's a fun read-aloud story with tons of jumping and jiving rhyming. Taken from Albert Whitman & Company's website:
"Deep inside the city was a hip and happy hare.
He was zippy, sometimes lippy, takin' taxis everywhere.

Way out in the country was a tortoise calm and cool.
He was quite the mellow fellow chillin' out beside the pool.

Kids will love to move and groove with this dynamic duo as they hop and pop towards the finish line in this hip-hopping retelling of the classic tale."

It was such a blast to illustrate, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed illustrating it!

Get it now at Amazon!
