Today is the publication day for How to Make a Book (About My Dog)!

Written by me, illustrated by Sarah Horne, and published by Millbrook Press/Lerner, How to Make a Book (About My Dog) is a nonfiction picture book about how nonfiction picture books are made. In addition to lots of solid information there are tons of illustrations of my actual dog, Ernie, as well as significantly more goofy jokes than you’ll usually find in my nonfiction.

I’ll be celebrating the book’s publication this coming Saturday, October 9, with a virtual event hosted by BookPeople.

Please join me, librarian Priscilla Delgado, Sarah Horne (via a pre-recorded how-to-draw-Ernie demonstration), and — for a completely unpredictable amount of time — Ernie himself. Details are here, or you can go straight to the registration page.

See you soon!
