Grab your Something Chocolate and bring it and your computer out to the hammock so you can relax and enjoy today’s Would You Read It extravaganza (which simply means that, due to trying to stuff in extra posts and features around the edges, I’m lumping June’s Straight From The Editor in with today’s pitch :))
|Yes, this is my yard – a little blurry because I tried to enlarge the hammock view.
Anyone who doesn’t have a hammock is invited to use mine – it’s just hanging around doing nothing 🙂
(Apologies to those of you with desktops – they’re a little harder to take out to the hammock – but I’m sure you’re resourceful :))
Anyhoo… you will recall that the winner of the June pitch pick was Lori with her pitch for These Little Piggies. Here is the original:
and here are Erin’s comments:
You guys are getting good at this! Erin hasn’t had a whole lot to say the last couple times 🙂
So, onto today’s pitch, which comes to us from the lovely Dana. Dana is an illustrator/author from Michigan who revels in sketching, painting, and creating new worlds. She is currently working on the illustrations of a PB manuscript that she has also written called “CJ’s Tiger”. Please visit her Website (which contains a link to her blog!) (And really, I just have to insert here that her art is SO engaging! I highly recommend a look!) And you will be pleased to know that her pitch is for the very book she mentioned she is illustrating!
Working Title: CJ’s Tiger
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: CJ thinks that it would be a great to have a tiger for a pet (even if his parents don’t agree). So CJ is thrilled when he awakens the next day to find that his cat “Tiger” has transformed into a real tiger! But he soon learns that having a pet tiger is a lot harder than he imagined when the day turns into one big cat-astrophe!
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Have a great day! If you see someone looking lost in North Carolina, that will be me 🙂
