Also, check out Jean’s new picture book. The cover is magic:

Light Up the Night Written by Jean Reidy
Illustrations by Margaret Chodos-Irvine

As he’s settling down for bed, a young boy embarks on an adventure—to the stars, around his planet, across the country, down his street and right back to bed—all in his imagination, without ever leaving the comfort and security of his room.


And be on the lookout for these fun titles:

There's a Corner in My House
(Hyperion)

Too Princessy!
(Bloomsbury)

All Through the Town
(Bloomsbury)

Jean's first two books are a blast too:


Too Purpley! by Jean Reidy
Illustrations by Geneviève Leloup


Too purpley, too tickly, too puckery, too prickly!

There is not a single outfit in the closet that our little fashion plate wants to wear. She tries on everything, but nothing is quite right. And the outfits are getting wilder by the minute!



Too Pickley! by Jean Reidy
Illustrations by Geneviève Leloup


Too wrinkly, too squishy, too fruity, too fishy!

It's lunchtime, but our fussy little boy does not like a single item on his plate. What is a boy to eat?



Too cute!

Note: The contest deadline is today. Good luck!
