The long overdue Book 10 is finally born.
I started it before I went to South Africa last year, optimistically thinking I would work on it while I was there. Somehow the beach, the ocean, the great white sharks (which I never actually saw, but their reputation makes them seem ever present), the penguins, the elephants, the Cape of Good Hope visible from the windows of our rented house...all conspired to distract me from the book project. Good thing I have a patient publisher.
But Book 10 is finished and I think it's my best collection so far.
It contains some of my favorite storylines, like the first "you gotta love August" series. And Max falling out of a tree, getting a concussion, and talking like an English nanny afterwards. I think it features some of my best artwork, too. Full color throughout, 192 pages, and now available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
If you'd prefer an autographed copy, you will be able to order it from this website in the books section. Soon.
As always, thanks for reading Stone Soup!
