Last fall, I was thrilled to be hired to write a series of early reader chapter books about the adventures of Dorothy and Toto in the land of Oz. I was given a lot of freedom to write these stories and I had a blast. Of course, both my publisher (Capstone/Picture Window Books) and Warner Brothers had to approve everything, but the entire process was smooth and enjoyable.
These books will be coming out very soon. In August, the school/library versions will be released, and then in October of this year, the paperback/trade copies will be available for purchase. I can’t wait!
I’m excited to share the covers of all four books, illustrated by Monika Roe. I think she did a great job of capturing the sweetness and the humor of the series. I was truly tickled to see her illustrations for the stories – she really brought it all to life.
