Cover Encore: THE SHIP IN THE WINDOW
What’s it called when the cover for a book is already revealed, but you are sharing it again? Re-reveal? Cover encore? Cover encore – I like that.
John Schu over at Mr. Schu Reads already debuted the cover for my upcoming book with Matthew Cordell, The Ship in the Window – we also answered some sentence starters about the book.
But I have to share it here as well.
The Ship in the Window comes into port on August 20, 2024. It’s available for preorder now.

What is this book about?
Mabel the mouse wants nothing more than to be a fearless sea captain traveling the world in search of adventure. Every night she watches a man carefully construct a model ship, as his son watches by her side. Mabel and the boy know the model ship is anything but a toy, but they both long to see if it can really float. So Mabel hatches a plan to make her seafaring dreams come true.
I can’t wait for you to see this book (click here to preorder). Thank you Matthew Cordell for illustrating it, Tamar Brazis for editing it, and Stephen Barbara for agenting it.
