Cover Reveal: What a Beautiful Morning by Arthur A. Levine

It’s a cloudy February here in Illinois.  Yesterday the heavens opened up and let loose a downpour.  Today it is wet if not actively raining.  We are in the thick of winter, albeit an oddly warm one.  With all this in mind, I think we need some cheering up.

Now a friend recently pointed out to me that there are a plethora of books coming out this year penned by publishers and agents.  Crazy, right?  If I’d been paying attention I’d have put that in my SLJ trending piece.  In any case, today’s cover reveal is from the man who had the wherewithal to bring us Harry Potter.  Arthur A. Levine has a new picture book out (and it’s hardly his first) and it’s coming to our shelves on August 9th.



Aw. Bring it all home, Katie Kath.

Thanks to Cassie Drumm for the pic.

    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING lives up to its title – it’s a beautiful, funny, profoundly moving book. I was in the room (THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENED, #Hamilton) at an event last year when Arthur did a reading, and everyone in the room was floored. Don’t miss this one.

  2. I was in the room where it happened, too, and I’m really excited that WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING is one step closer to getting out in the world.

  3. I was NOT in the room when it happened.

    But Arthur edited a picture book of mine years ago
    AND Katie Kath has illustrated my new picture book, coming March 15th.

    (Can you hear the Twilight Zone music?…)

  4. I guess the rest of us will just have to wait for it, wait for it…

  5. I’m about to become a granny for the first time, and the cover alone turns me to mush.
