In addition to several good reviews, it has just been accepted into the Original Art Show at the Society of Illustrators, showcasing the best children’s books of the year. These images a just a few from from the book. Thanks to Chad Beckerman and Howard Reeves, my dream team at Abrams Books for Young Readers. 

So happy to finally share the interior illustrations from Hook’s Revenge, the wonderful new debut from Heidi Schulz. Thrilled to get the final copy of the book last week. I gave the images everything I had to try to match the wonderful story. Pre-Order it today!
