Pages from A is for Alice — the picture book Janet (J.K.) Lee and I have been working on:
A is for Alice
Alice indeed was a curious girl
Who fell rather far through a hole in the world
She followed a clock-watching rabbit, you see,
To a land full of wonder…and madness…and tea.
M is for Mad Hatter
Mad Hatter, savior, so carefree
Turns our water into tea
Ever knowing there and thence
Much madness is divinest sense.
O is for Off:
Red Roses aren’t things to dread
Unless they’re white and you are dead.
No justice done, no tears to shed
The judgment’s in: Off with her head!

This is so cool. When is it in stores?
Janet’s agent is still in the process of shopping it around — I’ll let you know when we officially land a publisher. 🙂
Man, she just keeps getting better and better. And of course with your versifying, this should be a no-brainer sale. I love it.
