Congratulations to Bridget Heos for her new picture book, QUEEN DOG!
Queen Dog has ruled her castle with grace and majesty since she was a pup. Her people adore her. They provide her with delicious meals and shower her with attention. Lately, though, they have been a bit distracted and service has started to slip. Queen Dog tries her best to make do–but then a stranger moves into the castle! Who is this tiny newcomer commanding all the attention? A servant, or a pretender to the throne?
Heartlanders Ann Ingalls and Sue Lowell Gallion are on this list of picture books coming out in 2017! Congrats, ladies!
