Custard and Mustard

The colorful Coney Island adventure Custard and Mustard becomes available for purchase in May!

This is the second children's book collaboration by Maureen Sullivan and Alison Josephs to feature Carlos, the French Bulldog. In past posts I wrote about their first book, Ankle Soup, as well as sharing our class experience during a recent visit to Alison's Chelsea art studio.

Several days after our trip, Alison contacted me to ask if I would be interested in writing a short passage for the back cover of the book.

"Would I?!"

That weekend I sent her a 'short' blurb which was immediately posted on their website. And today I saw that they have added a picture of the back cover of the book as well.

Sure enough, there are my words in the bottom left hand corner.

Of course now this means that everyone in my family is going to get a copy of this book for Christmas or birthdays or whatever. I am sure to post more on this after the book launch on May 14th. But for now...

Color me excited!

Color you famous! The next step will be to author a book of your own. Maybe you could collaborate with these authors. WOW!

Joy Keaton said...

Tee-hee. ;)

Steve said...

That's great! I agree with Barbara -- when will we see a children's book by you?! You'd be a perfect author!

Lynda said...

I loved Carlos and his adventures in Coney Island. French bulldogs are my favorite breed. Kudos! for the comments on the back of the book.

Congratulations Gary!

Barbara & Steve - A children's book of my own would be heaven but I am torn between the sweet, innocent adventure and the raucous, hyper escapade. The classic battle that rages on within each of us I suppose. Maybe I could do one of each and see which gets the better response from the kids.

Joy - Thanks for your feedback and input on this. It was so helpful and gave me a clear direction. You are da bomb! Where would I be without you?

Lynda & Letty - Thanks!

WAT said...

I know your last name! I KNOW YOUR SURNAME!

What does that mean in the grand scheme of things I don't know, but WOOHOO!


Gary said...

Wat - This is uneven distribution because I don't even know if your first name has one or two L's and have no idea of your last name.
