Drumroll please….

I am so pleased to be able to share the cover for It’s a Mystery, Pig Face!

And here it is:


Pig-Face Cover


How cute is that? You’re going to hear a lot more about them in the coming months leading up to book’s publication, but there’s Tracy, Pig Face (AKA Lester) and Ralph!

A paper bag filled with money. A town full of suspects. An annoying little brother. What’s a girl to do?

The illustrator, the immensely talented Valerio Fabbretti, has perfectly captured the characters in a big moment in the book. Valerio was on my dream list for illustrators, and I am so pleased Sky Pony Press, and my wonderful editor Alison Weiss, were able to secure him.

This is the kind of book cover I would have adored in elementary school, and I think it will really attract readers!

I am thrilled with how things are coming together and can’t wait to share more news and goodies in the coming months!

Would love to know what you think!

Very cute! (I especially love the expression on the little guy’s face.) For sure I can imagine kids picking this up!
