a close up of a lions head sculpted out of grey clayWe’re pleased to tell you that the Fox and Crow book is back on track after a few big ol’ bumps in the road. We anticipate a late-summer release. In order to create the image for “The Donkey Who Wanted to Be a Lion,” Michelle had to create a clay sculpture or a “maquette” (learn about that at Wikipedia) of the image that reflected back from the water of the lake. Here’s an up-close image of the face of the lion.

Leave a Book: Little Free Library in Yuma, Arizona

Michelle inscribed and donated a copy of Apples for the Princess to the library. If you don’t know much about these libraries, you can learn more on the website here.
