Bright spot

Look at what arrived on my porch today!

Kat Pigott is a fellow member of SCBWI here in Louisiana, and last fall she showed me proofs of her new picture book. I thought it was so cute and charming. The finished product with Tami Curtis’s beautifully expressive illustrations is even more magical! My thanks to Pelican Publishing for such a nice surprise.

For anyone who loves carousels, City Park, and New Orleans, this adorable picture book is almost like being there, at least until we can see the lights and hear the music for ourselves again.

As a little personal lagniappe, this is the first time my name has been on a book cover, in a blurb on the back!

I’m proud to offer my support to such a lovely book. You, too, can support a local writer, illustrator, publisher, and bookseller by ordering copies for the kids in your life (even if one of them is you)!
