I'm very excited to announce the publication of FAIRY TALE COMICS. I've always loved comics, but even though I've used comic elements in books like BEDTIME FOR BEAR I've never done an actual comic, until now.

Fairy Tale comics is a collections of fairy tales adapted by 17 different artists. My kids and I love reading NURSERY RHYME COMICS (also edited by Chris Duffy) it's one of our favorite books. I was thrilled last year when Chris asked me to be a part of the new Fairy Tale Comics project. The book is finally here, available on September 24th. Here's a sample page of my adaptation of Rumpelstiltskin.

My first comic, I can't wait to do another.
