Coming October 3rd! 

Perfect for the holidays, my newest picture book, The Magnificent Mischief of Tad Lincoln introduces readers to the youngest son of the 16th President of the United States — a largely forgotten, but historically significant boy, who is responsible for an enduring national holiday tradition. Tad, who had a cleft palate that sometimes made his speech difficult to understand, was known for pulling pranks and wreaking havoc in the White House. His joyous presence became a source of comfort to his father during the nation’s darkest moments—and together they created a tradition we still celebrate each year.. Aimed at children, ages 4-8, and the young at heart, this keepsake Turnabout Tale — illustrated by Jacqui Davis — captures the hilarious White House mischief of Tad Lincoln and reminds us of the importance of one child in the life of a father — and a nation.  You can PRE-ORDER your copy here.
