It's here! My first picture book, THIS OLD BAND, illustrated by Matt Loveridge and published by Sky Pony Press, is out in the world! Thanks for stopping by to celebate with me. Scroll down to learn about the book, enter a contest to win a copy of the book, and hear me read a couple of pages. Music and mustaches for everyone!
HERE IS THE MAIN ATTRACTION!
What kinds of instruments would you imagine a band of cowboys playing? Surely nothing fancy, but they can still make do with what they have, like jugs, combs, boots, and whatever else they can find. Out on the open range, with no one to tell them to quit their hollerin’, a cowboy band counts from ten to one in a tune children are familiar with. Silly phrases, toe-tapping rhythms, and the occasional twist make these cowpokes a great addition to any story-time or bedtime lineup.
Featuring a ragtag group of cowboys from author Tamera Will Wissinger, and colorful, offbeat illustrations by Matt Loveridge, This Old Band is sure to delight children and adults alike (and teach kids a few things about counting and noises) with a fun take on a popular nursery rhyme.
