Congratulations to Bridget Heos whose new picture book WHO WANTS TO BE A PRINCESS? is out today!
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!
This just in from Heartlander Bridget Heos:
