I am one of the lucky nine million people who call Jaime Temairik friend. My beach house is adorned with her charming artwork (I’m especially fond of her Ewelia Child*), my heart has been warmed countless times by her kindnesses and my ribs are sore from all the times she’s made me laugh so hard ink sprayed out my nose.
I am so delighted that her newly published picture book (written by David Spellman and Lisa Lutz) is now out. Just a few days ago!
You are going to love this book. But DO NOT give it to a child who is lobbying for a pet dog, frog or tarantula: after such a child reads this book, you will be spending a lot of time at PetSmart. You can’t say I didn’t warn you.
The story of how this book came to be is a terrific story in itself but one you can read elsewhere. Like here.
*You, too, can own Ewelia — just go to Jaime’s Etsy shop.
Yep, Jaime has that deadly combination of wit and talent! Congrats, Jaime! Can’t wait to read the new book (and sharpen my negotiating skills).
Thank you, sweet Kirby! I tried to leave a comment earlier but it went into the ether, the pub date was pushed back to May to release with Lisa’s adult novel, so I don’t think it’s out yet—or I should be panicking! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
