This is the cover for my picture book, Lemur Troops & Critter Groups. Nikki Shoemaker is the illustrator and I can't say enough about her work. It's awesome. Her animal characters are cuter than cute. You just want to hug them. We don't have a release date yet, but we're hoping this book will be out by the end of summer. There will be 3 books in the Critter series. The other 2 are Stork Musters & Critter Clusters and Pony Strings & Critter Things, all to be published by 4RV Publishing. Each book contains 22 animal congregations in the form of a silly rhyme. With Nikki's amazing artwork, these are going to be adorable books. I loved how Nikki included little details on the cover that the animals are doing in the book, such as the mice with the dice, the sheep with the book, the gorilla with the guitar and so forth. Even the font she picked out is perfect. I can't seem to wipe the silly smile off my face. Thank you so much, Nikki -- it's absolutely perfect!
