Oh. My. Goodness.
How excited am I about this book's release?
And the reasons are thus:
1.) Corey Rosen Schwartz rocks. She was one of my first online writer friends, and she is just one of the sweetest, most encouraging, nicest people ever. Also. She writes a mean picture book. And she rhymes really well.
2.) It's illustrated by Dan Santat, and I adore his illustrations.
3.) Female Ninja Pig. Enough said.
4.) The Pea is going to love it. It combines so many of his favorite things. Rhyme. Puns. Ninjas. Pigs.
5.) This book trailer
The Three Ninja Pigs
My name's Karen Akins. And my debut YA sci-fi novel LOOP is coming out October 21, 2014 with St. Martin's Press. It's all sorts of time travelly goodness. I'm a self-professed geek--also a wife to Hubbykins, a mom to the Pea and Boo, and a follower of Jesus. And, occasionally, I find time to vacuum. I'm repped by the marvelous Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency.
