Here’s what’s new in my world!
Book 3 in the Pug and Pig series, PUG & PIG AND FRIENDS, illustrated by Joyce Wan, arrives August 3, 2021! Preorder now!
The stars of the celebrated Pug Meets Pig and Pug & Pig Trick-or-Treat are back in this funny and timely tale about learning to get along. Pug and Pig and their friends Robin and Squirrel love digging in the garden and zooming around the backyard together. But there’s another “friend” in the backyard who isn’t quite so friendly. That’s Cat. What does Cat love doing? Cat loves sneaking up on Pug and scaring him! Pug does not think this is funny. And he does not like it at all. But when thunderstorm comes and Cat gets scared up a tree, Pig, Robin, and Squirrel can’t get him to climb down. Only Pug can help. But will he?

OUR WORLD, A First Book of Geography, illustrated by Lisk Feng (released July 2020), sold out of its first printing before Christmas. The second printing will be available in the U.S. and U.K. markets on June 1. You can preorder copies through the buying options above. OUR WORLD was named one of Parents Magazine‘s top 20 of 2020, and was featured in the holiday gift guide of The Washington Post.
OUR WORLD is first for me in several ways – my first nonfiction book, my first book in rhyme, my first novelty board book, my first book that released in U.S. and international editions (so far, the book is also available in a French edition!) I hope this is a book for every age, and a book that inspires us to take better care of our planet. This book is my first with Phaidon Press, an amazing publisher focusing on creative arts. Stay tuned for news of a followup book with Lisk Feng and Phaidon coming in spring 2022.
