Cover Re-Reveal: CABOOSE by Me and Ruth Chan
Can I do a super-early cover reveal (the book doesn’t come out until Feb. 4th, 2025)?
Can I do a super early cover reveal that Colby Sharp previously revealed in his excellent weekly newsletter?
What? There are no rules about such things? Okay! That’s what I like to hear.
I’m asking because I’m excited to share the cover for a picture book called Caboose. I wrote the words and the fantastic Ruth Chan made the pictures.
It’s about the high-intensity (and highly ridiculous) world of lining up. Teachers and students, this one’s for you:
A summary of the book from the publisher:
Every kid knows the joy of being line leader. You can make the line go fast. You can make the line go slow. You can stop suddenly and make the line crash—oh, the power! Cedric has all sorts of tricks to make sure he’s first in line. There’s the fast walk, the slow run, the shoulder tap, the slingshot, and so much more. But when Cedric’s line leader antics go too far, he’s banished to the back of the line. The very back of the line.
Thank you Ruth Chan, Abrams Books, Courtney Code, and Stephen Barbara for making this book happen. I can’t wait for you to read it.
