The New York Times Reviews The Whale in My Swimming Pool June 2, 2015 14:32
I'm excited to announce that my latest picture book The Whale in My Swimming Pool was reviewed in last Sunday's New York Times. I was informed by my publisher that this was going to be in the paper a few weeks ago and was on pins and needles waiting to see what the review would say. I was relieved to see that it was very complimentary and positive! HOORAY!

Her world feels safe and joyful, even as the hero experiences anger and frustration." Read the full review here.
