Barbed Wire Baseball (a.k.a. my first kids book) cover reveal!

Over the weekend, my art director at Abrams Books, Chad Beckerman, posted this photo on his Instagram. And I had to steal it.
the first sighting of my kids book Barbed Wire Baseball cover! On the left is the dust cover, and on the right is inside hard-bound cover when you take off the dust cover. I love that he designed it so it has two different covers.
For sneak peek of interior pages, please check my previous post.

the book is coming out next spring. Abrams website and Amazon are both taking pre-orders.
