Nothing is more thrilling than having a surprise box show up on your doorstep… and when you open it up you find F&G’s of your upcoming book inside. F&G’s (folded and gathered’s) of picture books are like ARC’s (Advanced Reader’s Copy) in novels. The pages are all there, but they aren’t bound with the final hard cover. These are sent to various people and organizations that will read them and review them. I get some and so does Lee Harper (the illustrator). This is my first time seeing the book as it will look in its final form. I never know when they are coming for sure so it’s a delightful surprise! (Later, when the bound books come, that’s exciting too, but by then I know exactly how the book will look and so it’s not such a surprise). The books will release on August 1, 2021, and can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
