Release Date for Bedtime at the Swamp
It looks like there's a tentative release date set for Bedtime at the Swamp... and it's July 22nd, 2008. At least that's what Amazon.com is announcing. It's interesting that my first two books will be on the shelves just months apart. The sale of Cool Daddy Rat came years earlier than Bedtime's sale. Yet because two different publishers and illustrators are involved, schedules vary. We had to wait a while for an illustrator for Cool Daddy Rat, postponing the production process. But Mr. Lester was well worth it. His "Times Square" spread is my favorite. And I'm thrilled with the rich landscapes and darling characters Mr. Pamintuan created for Bedtime. Here's a sneak peek.
