Busy day ahead, boys and girls!
Princess Blue Kitty (my car, if you didn’t happen to be around this summer :)) and I will be driving to the Big Apple for the Brick Church Holiday Fair, which is always an extravaganza of epic proportions! Me, Phyllis, Woolliam, Santa – what could be more fun??? 🙂 Personally, I can hardly think of anything 🙂
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood but very cold this morning, and I am feeling significantly under-fueled for this weather, so let’s dive into something chocolate, shall we? How about….

… mmmmm… some Rocky Road Cookie Bars! They look sustaining, don’t they?! 🙂 Also just exactly like what your mother would approve of for breakfast 🙂 (Rocky road, by definition, includes nuts, and nuts have protein which equals healthy breakfast – see how that works?)
All right. Everyone feeling energized? Let’s start by announcing the winner of the October Pitch Pick! Announcing winners is such a cheerful fun thing to do! And the winner is…
Carrie, your pitch has already been flung through cyberspace to editor Erin Molta, and we will all await her words of wisdom with great anticipation!
Onward to today’s pitch which comes to us from the lovely Kim. Kim is “Mama” to a wonderful 8-year-old with multiple nicknames, wife of a genius, and has switched careers numerous times in her short (ha!) life. She has been passionate about picture books since her first encounter with Dr. Seuss, though it has taken her decades (don’t ask) to realize that writing them is something that she can probably do for the rest of her life. She writes a wonderful blog over at Kid Lit Dish and is a regular participant in PPBF. She would love it if you’d like to follow her on Twitter or like her on Face Book!
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: How The Bull Lost His Feathers
Age/Genre: PB (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: What, you say? Bulls don’t have feathers? Well, long ago, they did. This is the fable of how one bull lost beautiful peacock-like feathers for himself and his descendants… forever. (Hint: It’s also why the color red will always make a bull’s temper flare.)
Kim is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! And I am looking forward to a fun-filled author visit at the Brick Church Fair and hanging out with Santa! If you’re in NYC, stop by! 🙂
