Yesterday's email brought an exciting surprise: a page proof! I got to verify the punctuation and wording for my poem, "Bedtime Teeth."
It's to be in an anthology called Switching on the Moon: A Very First Book of Bedtime Poems, and it's edited by none other than Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters, illustrated by G. Brian Karas, and to be published in March 2010 by Candlewick. It's a companion to this lovely book:
The poem I share the page with, by Kaye Umansky, is terrific, and the artwork for our page is perfect! Bright, colourful, lots of fun! I've pinched myself. The proof was proof that I wasn't really imagining all this!
