Kangaraffes and Tigorillas?

The little bird said, "When the animals get together they talk about the days when everything was all mixed up. They were together. Like a kangaroo and giraffe -- a kangaraffe."

I'd like to let everyone know about a new book called Would A Kangaraffe Make You Laffe? It's written by Rich Aaron and illustrated by Stephen Macquignon. This rhyming picture book features wonderful, yet uniquely bizarre, illustrations of how animals might look if they were mixed up. My favorite picture is the Zebracat -- top part zebra and bottom part wildcat. Seeing a zebra licking his leg like a cat is enough to make anyone laugh. The book is available through 4RV Publishing, LLC. Stephen Macquignon is also the illustrator of my second picture book called The Marshmallow Man, coming in December. I hope you will want to share Would A Kangaraffe Make You Laffe? with your children. Maybe they'll even come up with their own funny animal combinations.

I also want to let everyone know that I am down to my last 3 copies of A New Job for Dilly. I'm not sure when I'll be able to order more, so if you'd like one personalized for you or your child, please order right away before they're gone. Of course, they're still available through 4RV Publishing, as well as Amazon and B&N online. You can order the book through any local bookstore with the ISBN number, which is located on my website. I've had a lot of people buy the book as gifts for friends and family members. Books make great gifts -- I always appreciate when my kids get books as gifts. If you want an autographed copy, order soon while I have some.
