PAL AWARDS

Thanks to Play on Words speech and language expert Sherry Artemenko for

naming my books PAL (Play Advances Language) Award winners! The award

"recognizes exceptional toys, games and books that encourage language,

spark fun and invite creative play." What I love about Sherry is that she

selects her favorites and then tests them with kids. Here's what Sherry and

her young readers had to say about JUST SAY BOO, THE TOOTH MOUSE

and SPIKE, THE MIXED-UP MONSTER. 

 

BONJOUR, SOPHIE! THE TOOTH MOUSE IS HERE

Did you know that kids in France don't have a Tooth Fairy? They have a Tooth Mouse.

So do kids in Argentina, Croatia, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Mexico, Russia,

South Africa, Spain and many other countries around the world. That's why I wrote

THE TOOTH MOUSE, just released August 1. "Beautifully executed," says Kirkus.

"Hood masterfully spins her story with lush language sprinkled with some French....

Readers will pour over the "exquisitely drawn details...." Here's a sneak peek!
