A Tiger Tail (Or What Happened to Anya on Her First Day of School)
By Mike Boldt
I think I've repressed a lot of my first-day-of-school memories. I moved A LOT when I was kid--I attended eight different schools before reaching high school--and showing up as the new kid was never easy. So though I didn't have something as extreme as a tiger tail, I could definitely relate to Anya's (the star of Mike's wonderful A Tiger Tail) tale of first-day-of-school jitters.
What an ABSOLUTE JOY it was editing this book. The dummy that I received on submission was in really good shape, though the pagination was off (for some reason, Mike and I struggled to get the page count right--we kept ending up with too many or too few pages). We had to lose some really sweet moments, but the finished product is just genius. Mike is both brilliant and kind, and I can't wait to do many more books with him. Happily, I already have another signed up.
Krista Vossen expertly handled the design of the book.
