Sur et Sous la Neige (My book’s being published in France!)

I just got an exciting letter from my editor at Chronicle Books letting me know that they’ve sold French language rights for my upcoming picture book, OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW, illustrated by  Christopher Silas Neal.

OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW translates loosely to SUR ET SOUS LA NEIGE, though I have no idea whether that will be the French title.

This will be my first book to be published overseas, which I find incredibly exciting… I love the idea of kids on the other side of the ocean reading this story that I drafted on a school bus on my way home from a snowshoe field trip in the Adirondacks.  Better brush up on my French for those Skype visits!
