Chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga.  Woo!  Woo!  Woo!

My new picture book, Railroad Hank, will be released on September 25th!  It's the story of lovable Railroad Hank and his fine little train who are going up the mountain to visit Granny Bett.  Along the way, Railroad Hank stops to talk to all of his friends and they offer to send something to cheer up Granny Bett.  Missy May offers some eggs, but Railroad Hank takes the hens.  Country Carl offers some milk, but Railroad Hank takes the cows.  In the end, Railroad Hank takes a crazy load of mixed-up cargo which is just the thing that Granny Bett needs. 

Children will giggle and laugh at all of the twists and turns in this old-fashioned type of story.  And best yet, they will see what real friendship brings to the lives of others.
