Saddened by the passing of Floyd Cooper
I feel honored that I was able to make a Ruth and the Green Book with Floyd and Calvin. Floyd Cooper's illustrations brought the story alive. He illustrated many great books. And I am deeply saddened that this talented illustrator died so young.

A Real Book Signing!
I had so much fun at the book signing at the Red Wheelbarrow in Paris on June 6th. Guigui's family came: her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Other descendants from the other nine women came as well. I felt honored.
The wonderful team at St. Martin's have sold foreign publishing rights to the UK, Canada, Italy, Finland, The Netherlands, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Japan, Poland, Lithuania, China and Hungary! It's a very exciting time. I feel lucky to work with such a brilliant team.
