This is an illustration from my eighth picture book — A Dinner Date for Dilly. I was thrilled when I found out this image was one of the three approved for promotion purposes. Ginger Nielson did a great job with all of the drawings, but this particular one is a favorite for me. As you know, I love all hot chilis and anything super spicy. So, Dilly's face is hilarious to me. And as you also know, I am a huge fan of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers. So, I guess you could say this illustration has double meaning for me — Red Hot Chili Dilly!
