Tell us more about your new book coming out this Fall! How long have you been working on it? Where did the idea come f om? Who is publishing it!

Thanks for asking, Meg :)
"Monsters Go Night-Night" has been a LONG time in coming! It started out as something originally called "My Favorites Book" that I wrote in 2009. It was quite different then... there weren't even any monsters in it.
In 2010, Abrams took interest in "My Favorites Book" and wondered if I would be open to a few changes. Four years and three complete overhauls later, Abrams finally acquired it. Yea!
In the three months after acquisition, I created all the artwork for the book. But then it would be another 2 and half years before its publication date would roll around. Timelines in the publishing world can be so drawn out!
