Cock-A-Doodle-YEE-HAW!! My 1st-ever book review & my very 1st book appearances are underway …. I’m giddy with (gulp) excitement!!
KIRKUS reviewed Cock-A-Doodle-DANCE! Although it’s not public for a few more days, here’s an excerpt:
Life on the farm is positively “Cock-a-Doodle DULL” until Rooster catches a jitterbug that starts the whole barn a shakin’ and a rollin’.
“The chickens do / the cha-cha, / as the dogs begin / ballet, / and shimmy sheep / don’t stop their / swing until / the light of day.” Barnyard beats and dancing livestock tales are a dime a dozen, but this snappy rhythm is enough to carry readers, regardless of originality. (It’s super fun to read aloud.)
YIPPEE!!! & KUDOS to my uber-awesome illustrator, Rich Deas, as well … he really made this book FAB & FUN-tastic!!
Also, I’ve solidified my VERY 1st author appearances for Cock-A-Doodle-Dance’s book launch … double-GULP!!
I will be having a “Welcome to the World, Cock-A-Doodle-Dance!” book-launch-party on June 10th @ The Cutting Board in Warren, Mi complete with Cock-A-Doodle Dancing-lessons (given by the author…ME)! Gift & goodies, cake, punch & appetizers & a visit by the “Rooster” himself!!!
And of course the author (ME… feels amazing to be able to write that) will be there to sign copies of MY BOOK!!!
AND on June 26th @ 2:30 I will be @ the St Clair Shores Library to read Cock-A-Doodle Dance to the children & give a quick demo of the dance! I will have a book signing/sale session afterwards, as well.
May 22 is fast-approaching …. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cock-A-Doodle DANCE! And welcome into the wonderful world of words & READING!!!
Literary Love to all,
