exciting new book (sneak peek)

Just got this photo from my AD at Abrams Books Chad Beckerman.
We worked together on Newbery winner Margi Preus’ upcoming young adult book Shadow on the Mountain wrap around cover design.
the book will be available this fall. I cannot wait to see the actual book in person.
Last but not least, I read the book before starting to work on the cover, and it is a GREAT book, even for us grown-ups.
