Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
I hope you’re all wearing your raincoats and galoshes and holding tight to your umbrellas!
After the driest summer in recent memory, we are experiencing heavy rain. The crunchy grass and thirsty trees are drinking it up gratefully, and the Weather People (who may or may not be related to the Village People :)) are all in an uproar, delighted to have weather drama to report in the form of flood watches. I’m not sure when weather became entertainment, but boy do they do their best to keep you riveted!
Of course, when it rains like this, you know what that means… I’ll be in my basement paddling about in the canoe and bailing out 🙂
There is an upside, though. All that paddling calls for extra sustenance (I’ve got to keep up my strength! :)), and what better than Something Chocolate? Hmm… what should it be today? I don’t think we can go wrong with Oreo Brownie Trifle, do you? 🙂

Yeah. Forget the bowl/plate. I’m just grabbing a spoon and digging in! 🙂 Enjoy!
Today’s pitch comes to us from Zainab. Zainab Khan is a pre-published author who writes picture books that are quirky or interactive. She also writes picture books that deal with serious issues like disabilities, homelessness, and diversity. In addition, Zainab is in the midst of writing a middle grade mystery about ancient civilizations.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Dear Cat
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: Persistent Bird keeps bugging Cat with his letters to be his friend. Cat snubs Bird…until it’s snack time. Cat is ready for a tasty meal except Bird has his own devious plan in mind for this “clever” cat.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Zainab is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to rescuing any salamanders who might have floated into the basement. Very Sorcerer’s Apprentice 🙂
Ahoy, matey’s! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!! 🙂
