Sand Dollar, Sand Dollar

I have a teeny bit of news, but it’s in five or six languages!

My first ever picturebook, published in 1980 by J.B. Lippincott, then taken on by Harper and Row, which has been out of print for years, is being reissued by a small start-up as a bilingual paperback and Kindle book. Bab’l Books was started by two Harvard Business school graduates who are not native English speakers. Their mission is to make available dual language books with universal themes for kids ages 3-7. Their translations are obtained through crowd-sourcing.

Sand Dollar, Sand Dollar, which I wrote and illustrated, will soon be available in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Vietnamese, Tagalog, and possibly German. Each also contains the English text.

Marianne Knowles interviewed Jair Hernandez, my contact at Bab’l Books, for her WritersRumpus blog. In case you are interested, that interview can be found here.

I’m psyched!
