I am thrilled, nay, ECSTATIC to finally be able to share the cover art and copy of my upcoming picture book I DARE YOU NOT TO YAWN (illustrated by Serge Bloch).

Here it is!

And here is the yawny description!

“A yawn can land you in your pj’s and under the covers before you can blink and say “Baa baa black sheep.” So clamp your mouth shut and look away from your sleepy dog, stay away from your cuddly blanket, and whatever you do, don’t think of baby orangutans stretching their long arms out for a snuggly hug. Otherwise, you might find your mouth opening wide and letting out a great big yawny yaaaaaawn — hey, you were supposed hold it in! A hilarious read-aloud that is so much fun, kids will beg for it again and again, whatever the consequences.”

The cover is soooooo awesome, and you hooked me with those teensy orangutans and their fuzzy little…YAWWWNN…arms, looking for a…YAWWWWN…hug.

Looking forward to sharing this with many yawners in my life… and expecting it to be perfect for library pajama story times. LP

Thanks, Jodi and Lois! Candlewick will be releasing a “Read to Us!” Story Hour Kit for library story times. I got a sneak peek this week and can’t wait to use it during my library visits as well. :-)
