Our fourth book of the Dog Detectives’ series is off being illustrated. Yippee!
We love Monika’s bright and whimsical illustrations so we can’t wait to see the first sketches.
Without giving too much away, this fourth book finds the Dog Detectives helping a very special opossum find her way home. It is inspired by our six month bicycle tour across America. The book highlights some of America’s most iconic landscapes and cities. And of course, the Dog Detectives meet a host of characters along the way. Just watch out for the hungry alligators!
The publishing date is the Fall of 2012. We will be sure to keep you posted and give you some sneak peeks along the way.
Our publisher Maverick also has some great new titles coming out in February…
