On Writing

In Case You’re Wondering…

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.

Click to enlarge. Cuz you should! It’s purty!

And that illustration appears in the soon-to-be-released picture book, Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist!

It’s educational AND funny!

And, yes! You can preorder it here in either hardcover or paperback.
