Princess Peepers Picks a Pet Nominated for Iowa's State Award!

I'm beyond excited to share that Princess Peepers Picks a Pet was nominated for the Iowa State Goldfinch Award. That means librarians got together and made a master list of the best books for ages K-3rd. The children will read them all and then vote on their favorite. I am thrilled librarians thought so highly of my book!


What makes Princess Peepers a character that children love to read about? For one thing, she really wants to please other people and although the other princesses are mean to her, she doesn't retaliate. In the end, she always does her own thing and that's the message of the book.

There will be a new Princess Peepers coming out. I'm so excited to share about this. But I can't reveal it yet. In this one, Princess Peepers will be taking a stand for true beauty on the inside!
