Sneak Peek

Here’s the first sneaky-rabbity-peek of the cover of my picture book. My wonderful art director did a brilliant job in suggesting a background colour, which makes Squish just pop out of the page. Love it. Viking recently sent the digital page proofs of the final layout my way for approval and the book is now at the printers. I should get the first printed page proofs in the next few months. Exciting times. Still a while until release though, but I can now officially say that Squish Rabbit will be in bookstores on the 4th August 2011…
