This the cover proof for Sea Monster’s First Day, my picture book about a nervous sea monster’s first day in a new school…of fish. It’s coming out with Chronicle in July, and my terrific editor Melissa just sent me the page proofs via FedEx…a fun surprise waiting when I got home from school!
Illustrator Andy Rash is the amazing talent (and sense of humor!) behind the artwork. That little orange backpack makes me smile every time I see it.
