Firstsecond (publishers of In Real Life, the bestselling middle-grades
graphic novel Jen Wang and I made) have just revealed the cover for
Poesy the Monster Slayer, my first-ever picture book, illustrated by
Matt Rockefeller and scheduled for publication in July 2020.

Poesy is a book about a little girl who is obsessed with monsters, who
uses her deep knowledge of monsters' weaknesses to repurpose her toys --
a princess tiara, bubblegum-scented perfume, a doll-house's roof, and
more -- as field-expedient monster-slaying weapons, to do nightly battle
with the monsters who come into her room, to the great consternation of
her parents, who only want to get a good night's sleep.

This book has been in the works for a long time, and I'm so glad to see
it finally heading to the finish line! Matt's illustrations are perfect
-- a kid-friendly, 21st century update on my favorite monster drawings,
from Universal's classic monsters to Marc Davis's Haunted Mansion spook
