McGinty, and The Adventures of a South Pole Pig (Harcourt Children's Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) , written by Chris Kurtz. Releasing in the Spring of 2017 will be Blue Ethel, written and illustrated by Jennifer Black Reinhardt and published by Margaret Ferguson Books.
Her work appears very often in magazines such as Cricket, Ask, Babybug, and Ladybug.
