Greetings from Hopewell Springs, the home of author, illustrator, teacher, dog guy, and cat guy, 
Michael J. Rosen.

Thanks so much for sharing in these book adventures. Just out this fall: The Tale of Rescue, a novel for all ages. Want to see a teaser for the book by the cattle dog who inspired the book:

This page is a preliminary sketch by Stan Fellows for the book. Others follow after the link. (Other sketches are available for purchase. Please e-mail for details or just because you want to say, “Hey!”)

And, there’s a new picture book for young and grown-up cat people: The Maine Coon’s Haiku and Other Poems for Cat Lovers. “The perfect paean to pusscats,” about which the starred SLJ review says, “The brevity and poignancy of the haiku format perfectly capture the feline essence in this book of verse.” Starred reviews in Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, and a Parents’ Choice Award.
