Big news today! I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be partnering with celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis to write the next four books in her Recipe for Adventure chapter book series. Each story follows siblings Alfie and Emilia as they embark on a food-related adventure in a new city – all thanks to the magical cooking of their great-aunt Zia Donatella. Get caught up on Books 1-4 and I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as #5 is available!

I’m so happy to announce that I have a new Littlest book coming out in 2012. The Littlest Elf will debut in bookstores on September 1, 2012. Oliver is the smallest elf in the North Pole and he’s searching for his special job in Santa’s workshops.
I can’t wait to be able to show the cover art for The Littlest Elf. The best part is that it is illustrated by Kirsten Richards who did such a fantastically sweet job on The Littlest Pilgrim. I’m so excited to be working with her again. So, stay tuned for more Oliver-related news in 2012!
In preparation for the launch of Miss Fortune I thought it would be fun to post instructions for creating your own fortune teller (or cootie catcher as some people call them). So, here you go (complete with exciting pics from my desk)!
