My new picture book, HIDING PHIL, is out!
It's the story of three siblings who come upon an elephant named Phil and decide to bring him home. "Our parents will love Phil!" they cry out. Until it dawns on them: "Uh, oh . . ." No they won't!
So what do they do? Try to hide him, of course! But hiding an elephant proves to be much more difficult than they ever imagined.

Some of you might remember Milton the Talking Toaster, who was the mascot for Kellogg's Pop Tarts back in the 70's. As a kid, I loved Milton (and the Pillsbury Dough Boy, and Tony the Tiger). Milton was a huge influence for this project:
