Eek! and Hurrah, Huzzah, Wahoo!


Author copies of my new book, Eek! A Noisy Journey from A to Z, co-authored and illustrated by  Julie Paschkis, arrived today! It's a combination of nonsense, energy and color; it's a story of love and friendship and adventure and misadventure; it's a journey from A to Z, all in sounds, from Achoo to ZZZZ. 

I can't wait to give a copy of it to Henry and Thea, my six- and three-year-old neighbors. 

Here's a link to Books Around the Table, where Julie Paschkis has just posted her thoughts(and several illustrations) from Eek! https://booksaroundthetable.wordpress.com/2020/08/27/eek/

 Here's a link to a starred review of the book at Kirkus (sneak peek: "An absolute zoo of an ABC book - in the best possible way.") 

Thanks to all the people at Peachtree for getting this book out into the world. And thanks to Julie Paschkis - again - of course! Julie's artwork is always so invigorating - the publisher, Peachtree, even chose one of the illustrations from Eek! to be the cover of their Fall 2020 catalog.  ♥️

Whoop-dee-do, hubba hubba, hot-diggity-dog, la-di-dah, yippee, YAHOO!


  1. Congratulations, Julie! This looks like such a clever and fun alphabet romp! Loved reading Julie's post about the books journey.

    1. Thanks, Buffy! It was wonderful to see Julie P. post so many illustrations over at Books Around the Table. She is such a talented (and energetic!) artist!!
