Picture Books

My picture book work is progressing!  Thanks to Julie Hedlunds 12 x 12 in 2012 Picture Book Draft Challenge, I have a book draft constantly in mind to complete.  I can’t seem to think about a book all month without getting it pretty close to almost finished…all it needs is a critique and re-reads and re-visions.  BUT it’s there and that’s what has me excited.

Here’s pitches on the ones I feel are almost finished, near complete…

A self-assured barnyard rooster is alarmed by an un-conventional crow on the other side of the roost, and is challenged by the discovery of another rooster who has all the hens a-hopping to a new clucky beat.  How is he going to handle this cocky new trend?

A son asks questions about where his bubbles go, what they see and do…the loving reply from a patient mother assures him of the wondrous journey.

      Love roosters…chickens, all farm animals. Have goat stories, too.
      Unfortunately many advise ‘no more animal’ stories or anthropomorphic characters.
