Unexclusive Cover Reveal: JUST ONE FLAKE by Travis Jonker
A while back, I shared the news about Just One Flake. Yesterday, John Schu revealed the cover over on Watch. Connect. Read. I also talked with John about the making of the book and shared some early cover sketches.
But what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t also share the cover here?
Presenting the cover for Just One Flake. It stores October 10th, 2023.
You can preorder a copy here.

A little about the book from the publisher:
A hilarious celebration of wintertime, curiosity, and outdoor play in this author-illustrated debut from acclaimed creator and elementary school librarian Travis Jonker
It’s snowing outside! Liam rushes out into the squall determined to catch one perfect snowflake. He tries any number of tricks to complete his mission, but each time he is thwarted.
He sticks out his tongue and looks up . . . nope. He builds a snowman, climbing up to get a little closer to the snow . . . still nope. He runs around the yard—tongue still out—because faster is better, right? Wrong! Nothing seems to work. Until, in a final leap of faith, he catches that one flake . . . in a way he never expected. And the snowflake itself is pretty unexpected too.
From librarian and picture book creator Travis Jonker comes a hilarious and satisfying story all about outdoor play and the natural world’s stunning surprises.
