A couple of people have asked me why I changed my blog avatar to an illustration of a cute, widdle mouse peeking through the grass.
Oh, I have my reasons.
This illustration (by the incomparable artist Elizabeth Zechel) is a detail from a larger illustration.
And that illustration appears in the soon-to-be-released picture book, Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist!
And, yes! You can preorder it here in either hardcover or paperback.
