Reason #2,539 Why I Love My UPS Guy (Hint: Book!)

This arrived last week!


























There's a map inside...





















And loads of illustrations big and small...





















On almost every page...





















Including drama! (Grasshopper plague!)...





















And in the back there are recipes, games, and instructions for making a corn-husk doll. Fun!...





















And under the dust jacket, one of my favorite things– a sweet silhouetted surprise that just about made me swoon. (I LOVE this special detail!)...





















The actual book birthday is about three weeks away (September 16th), but you can pre-order a copy now if you'd like. (May I suggest your local independent bookstore?)

Yay! (Also, please excuse the phone-quality pictures!)
