Spring - Donna Miskend

Penelope apologizes to Christopher for her brother's trouble making.

Spring makes me think of flowers and faeries - just so happens that a MG story I am writing works with this month's theme! View a sample of my work at www.donnamiskend.com.

Good Table Manners for Little Monkeys

My first board book GOOD TABLE MANNERS FOR LITTLE MONKEYS came out last January with Harvest House Publishers, and it's been fun watching kids and parents read my book. The other day, my neighbor who has a one-year old girl told me that this was her daughter's first book, and I just smiled all day. How cool is that? This little book is doing well, and the next in the series is a bedtime title that comes out next January. Till then, please visit me at http://www.susieleejin.com/. I'm giving away free monkey bookmarks all May. You can also see me and 90+ NJ author/illustrators (including fellow CBIG members Jennifer Merz and Vicky Rubin) read at the NJ Book Festival in Paramus this June 14th from 1-5 pm. Visit http://www.booksnj.org/ for more info, and I hope to see you there! ~ Susie Lee Jin.
