My editor says I can share the cover art for my picture book, OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW.  Ready to think snowy thoughts?  Here it is!

OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW is the story of a girl who goes cross country skiing with her father and discovers the secret world of animals living under the snow. 

A little snowy trivia  now…

  • The illustrator for this book, Christopher Silas Neal, also did the cover for the book I’m reading aloud with my 7th graders right now, Laurie Halse Anderson’s CHAINS.
  • OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW is actually the first book my agent sold for me, though it’s coming out after four other titles she sold later on.
  • I wrote the first draft of this book on the back of a middle school attendance sheet, on a bus returning from a snowshoe field trip in the Adirondacks.  The ride was bumpy.  The draft was messy.  But it worked out.

OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW comes out this fall from Chronicle Books.
