At (very) long last, I am excited and relieved to say that my debut poem picture book, The Crab Ballet, is finally almost here!
Coming out March 8, it’s illustrated by Cécile Metzger, who has filled it with her beautiful and delicate watercolor creatures.
I mean, how many skinny little crab legs did she have to paint, anyway?!
To celebrate, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek … and a giveaway challenge!
That’s right, to be entered in the giveaway, there’s a fun little quiz waiting for you. But don’t worry–the crabs are very forgiving if you’re rusty on your meter.
I hope you will check it out and join the giveaway fun! All is explained right here in this little video!
What’s that? You need more sea creatures? Luckily I’m putting together an activity pack for your young marine life lovers. It will be ready to send out on March 8 and includes coloring pages (like the one below), mazes, word puzzles, and more.
There’s more info on how to sign up for that in the video!
Thank you for celebrating with me! Now you need to do three pirouettes and grand jeté over to The Miss Rumphius Effect where Tricia is hosting Poetry Friday!
