In just three months Diva Delores, the star of my next picture book, DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE (Sterling Children’s Books, March 6, 2018) will make her debut, as will her darling sidekick, Fernando. And all of a sudden, last week, it hit me — what will they wear? I mean a diva can’t just wear any old thing to her debut. And neither can her companion. They need to look special. They need to look dazzling. They need to take your breath away. I realized, I better get busy!!!
So, over the holidays, with the help of a couple of sweet elves (a special thanks to Dianne Herrick and Nancy Benz!), and inspired by Rebecca Gerlings wonderful illustrations, we got Diva Delores and Fernando all dressed up and ready to go. Since I plan on attending each and every book event and school visit as well, we pulled together a little something special for me too!
Ready for a sneak peek? Enjoy!
