We are excited to feature a cover reveal of WILLOW THE ARMADILLO, by Marilou Reeder, illustrated by Dave Mottram (Abrams Books For Young Readers) coming out on April 28, 2020. Isn't it an awesome cover?

About the Book

More than anything, Willow wants to be the hero in a picture book of her very own. She knows that achieving her dream will take a lot of work, so she studies hard at Picture Book Academy and signs up for many auditions. But she just can’t seem to land a leading role! Will she ever reach her goal?

About the Author

Marilou Reeder loves picture books so much that she spends as much time as possible writing them. She resides near Philadelphia with her husband and three book-loving daughters. She is also the author of The Daring Prince Dashing. Follow Marilou on twitter @MarilouReeder.
