It has been one of my great joys as an editor to work with Jessie Sima. I acquired Not Quite Narwhal and Harriet Gets Carried Away at Simon & Schuster and got almost to the finish line (read: pub day) on the former (the books were being printed when I departed for Holt). And it has been an ENORMOUS highlight in my writing career to work with Jessie on Snow Pony and the Seven Miniature Ponies. The art she created for the book (along with Justin’s great edits and Lizzy’s incomparable design) continues to blow my mind almost a year after publication. And because we did that book together, we get to do events together, like these six library visits in Philadelphia during Pride Month!
