Welcome to the world, little book.
Outside it is rainy and dark, which feels like the right day for this book to arrive.
So many thanks to the people who helped this story become a book :
To Molly O'Neill for helping me find the one story my heart most needed to tell.
To my editor Maria Modugno, for seeing possibilities in me 14 years ago when I was trying to write novels.
To my art director Sarah Hokanson for the beautiful book design.
To Root Literary for all the magic you do for your writers and illustrators.
And thank you friends, for sticking with me on my picturebooking journey.
