I had the extreme honor to do the cover for Newbery Winner Jean Craighead George’s final book. She passed away last year, with this book on her desk. You probably read “Julie and the Wolves” in junior high. This book comes out next year from Dial Books. I also did a bunch of interior spots and a map for the end pages. Thanks to art director Jason Henry and team for the cool type above my image.

I created the trailer, but the amazing song in the video was written and performed by my friend Nathan Talley.
