Another nice review of AND THE BULLFROGS SING

Hi everyone,

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!

Book Giveaway: AND THE BULLFROGS SING

Hi everyone,

Here’s a second post today. I didn’t realize that Kathy Temean’s feature of AND THE BULLFROGS SING went up today on her site at https://kathytemean.wordpress.com/2019/04/30/book-giveaway-and-the-bullfrogs-sing-by-david-harrison/?fbclid=IwAR1TSwEbzzHJ0qEdY5EQLFdCG4n9WgTcr3CvVICI2tYXIzfYiw3bQphAnTQ

It’ a lovely interview/article about the journey my new frog book took from concept to reality and introduces anyone who might know her to Kate Cosgrove, the gifted artist on the book. It also takes you to a new interview elsewhere with Kate so you can learn more about her.

AND, if you follow Kathy’s suggestions, you might be the one who wins a free signed copy of AND THE BULLFROGS SING.

Please take a minute to visit Kathy’s site and leave a comment if you’d like to have your name in the hat for the drawing.

And the bullfrogs sang

Hi everyone,

Yesterday Grace Maccarone sent sketches for my new picture book, AND THE BULLFROGS SANG, being published by Holiday House next year. It’s the first art I’ve seen for the book, which is being illustrated by Kate Cosgrove, and I like it very much. The book is about the life cycle of bullfrogs. I should dedicate it to those lusty singers who sit around the shore of Goose Lake in spring, each trying to outdo its competitors in attracting a mate.

I’ll spend part of today going back over the text to make a few corrections and I also need to write the back matter. I have plenty of notes so that shouldn’t take too long.
