It’s time that this book belongs to you, and not just Lucy, me, and our incredible team at Chronicle. We hope you love it enough to share it with someone you love!

Just yesterday, Betsy Bird named it to her list of Transcendent Holiday Picture Books! You can see the whole list here.

And in other exciting news, the book is on the Winter Kids’ Indie Next List. Thanks, Indies! We’d give you a frog too.
