Got My Author's Copies!!

Wahoo! I got my author's copies in the mail from my editor!! I'm so excited! It's hard to believe that one little sentence that popped into my head 20 years ago, "You'll never believe what I saw at the zoo" is now a real, hardcover book from Simon & Schuster! Anyone who has edited a book will understand this - that sentence is no longer in the book - it got cut in the last round of edits. I don't care :-)

The big one is a full-size hardcover that will be in stores July 20, 2010 and the small one is a paperback that will be in Cheerios boxes in March. I can't believe it's almost here - it's been a long year!


  1. Neat! I can't wait to read it. Colin Jack looks like he has a very Seussian illustration style. It's beautiful.

  2. Congrats, Lori! The cover looks awesome!

  3. The book is so cool!! I love it and can't wait until it's in the stores to buy it for my neice and nephew!

    Congratulations Lori!

  4. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I'll be buying Cheerios in March too!

  5. Thanks for sharing my excitement!

    Karen - I know, isn't Collin so talented - his illunstration definitely has a 1960s feel to it.
