The Practically Perfect Pajamas Rides Again!

Everything that you will read about the rerelease of my first book is true... HOWEVER, IT IS NOW MAY 2008 AND WINSLOW PRESS CONTINUES TO ABUSE THE SITUATION BY NOT PAYING ME ANY OF THE ROYALTIES OWED. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!

Alright, this bit of HUGE NEWS has been many years in the making... Given that I live near a make believe western town -- wooden boardwalks, hitching posts, and serious ordinances for appropriate signage etc. -- the "Rides Again" is only fitting!


The Practially Perfect Pajamas, my very first authored and illustrated picturebook - a Summer 2000 Booksense Selection, a Southern California Booksellers Association "Best Bet" for the Y2k Holiday Season, and a 2001 CBC/IRA Children's Choices Selection (picked by kids no less!) - is finally BACK IN PRINT!

2500 additional copies have been newly minted and shipped to undisclosed locations on the eastern seaboard. For now, individuals and bookstore owners alike should place orders directly with Winlsow Press: dfk@winslowpress.com or from their website at www.winslowpress.com.

With some amount of luck, Winslow's bankruptcy stigma will eventually wear off, appropriate parties will be justly compensated, and the book will sit comfortably on library shelves -- hard to find only because it is being read!

I'm a fellow Carleton alum! I have 2 two-year-old girls and a 10-month-old boy and they love Percy and his pajamas! We've been reading it since they were tiny babies! Congrats on the reprint.

Keep up the great writing...
