In case you missed it over on social media, I’m thrilled to share here the cover of my very first early reader, Nat the Cat Takes a Nap.
What’s the book about?
Here’s how my publisher describes it:
Nat the Cat is taking a nap. Or he would be…if only the narrator would stop interrupting his sleep! This witty story, where Nat’s words keep getting turned upside down and inside out, is sure to make readers laugh out loud.
If you know anything about me and my work, you probably know that I’m passionate about growing readers, and try to do so in a number of ways throughout my work. By entering this early reader space, I’m getting a chance to not just grow readers — but create them!
I hope Nat the Cat Takes a Nap is the sort of book that kids will love to have their parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and siblings read aloud to them, and that their enjoyment of the story and artwork will ultimately encourage them to try to read it themselves (if they don’t start off by reading it themselves).
Nat the Cat Takes a Nap will be out January 17th, 2023, but is available for preorder now wherever books are sold. If you order copies from my local independent bookstore, The Silver Unicorn, I’ll sign and personalize them. You can order the book from The Silver Unicorn by clicking HERE.
Stay tuned for more news about this book — and more news about Nat’s continuing adventures, too!
