Yesterday my statement from Random House arrived and I was happy to see that WAKE UP, SUN! sold 6,164 more copies over the last six month reporting period. Its total since it was published nearly 33 years ago in September 1986 is now 1,212,581 copies. Last I knew, three years ago, it was in its 72nd printing making it by far my best selling book in print. I love Hans Wilhelm’s artwork!
As my latest title, AND THE BULLFROGS SING, continues the process of finding its way into the market place, any new (good) review is most welcome. That’s why I’m grateful to Youth Services Book Review for this one. https://ysbookreviews.wordpress.com/2019/07/09/and-the-bullfrogs-sing-a-life-cycle-written-by-david-l-harrison-illustrated-by-kate-cosgrove/ The reviewer gives it a 4 rather than a 5 but the difference seems to be that she would have liked a glossary at the end of the book to define terms used in the book. I’m not sure what terms she might select but I had hoped that all was explained in the text so I chose to present addition frog facts and resources on the last page. It’s still a good review and I am delighted to receive it.
By the way, the wonderfully talented artist for this book, Kate Cosgrove, is receiving rave reviews for her work. Get acquainted with Kate’s work and you’ll become a fan too!
