The Sherpa Mommy

How can you tell if you are seeing a real live Sherpa Mommy? Sherpa Mommies are known for their extraordinary ability to carry an entire afternoon's worth of errands in their arms at one time. Click on the chart below to see the characteristics of the Sherpa Mommy in her natural habitat.

p.s. I also thought this would be pretty appropriate for this week's Illustration Friday theme, transportation.

The Twelve Days of Christmas in Georgia

Today I'm giving a shout out to fellow illustrator and SCBWI-er, Elizabeth Dulemba, on the release of her latest book The Twelve Days of Christmas in Georgia, written by Susan Rossen Spain, published by Sterling Books. The art looks really yummy. Sterling is publishing a Twelve Days for each state and personally I'm glad they picked a couple of Southerners to do Georgia's. Elizabeth is a whiz at on-line promotion and has lined up a maze of blogs, activities, promotions and tours to get the word out! The actual release date is Tuesday October 5th so with E's fab self promotion we can all expect to see this book's release in the news crawl on CNN by Thursday.

On a more serious note, it's about time for me to begin my annual holiday drum beat of GO BUY BOOKS! With 2 kid's birthdays and Christmas in the next 3 months our family can almost singlehandedly support the reading industry. Almost. The rest of you need to do your part too...... and take my recommendation of The Twelve Days of Christmas in Georgia as a great way to get started.
