Where Lily Isn’t is here! And we are having a party!
If you live in Seattle, Julie Paschkis and I invite you to come celebrate with us on Thursday, March 12, at 6:30pm at Secret Garden Bookstore. Please bring a picture or anecdote to share about your pet, past or present.
It was two and a half years ago that I had tittery jitters about starting work on the images, and now the book is finally out in the world. Of all the books I have done, this is one of the ones I am most pleased with. It deals with the difficult subject of loss, but really it is a book about the indelible mark love makes on our hearts.
We hope you can join us on March 12!
Congrats on your book baby! Love the illustrations you’ve shared here.
Thank you, Jilanne!
Congrats to both of you!
Thank you, Mercedes!
I predict this beautiful book will reach a lot of children (and parents) who are feeling the heartbreak of losing a beloved pet, Margaret. You and Julie have every right to be proud of it. Congratulations!
I won’t be able to make the launch, but this sweet beauty will soon be part of my home. Congratulations, Julie and Margaret! I’m finishing up a book on loss and love called, Old Pearl that comes out in 2021. I bet Lily and Pearl will be the best of friends, sitting in any child’s lap.
Can’t wait to see it!
