Wagons Ho! release day!

Wagons Ho! is out! 
Happy release day to my co-author 
George Hallowell and fabulous artist Lynne Avril.

Two trips on the Oregon trail, 
two girls and their families
(one from 1846 and one from 2011). 
All done in comic book style.

Two girls move from Missouri to Oregon -- one in 1846 and one in 2011. One trip takes five months and the other five days. One trip is in a covered wagon, the other in a car. But both girls will miss their old homes and worry about the long trip. Both girls stop at well-known landmarks and travel the Rocky Mountains. And as each girl reaches her new home, she finds her new room and her new friends. Wagons Ho! is a unique look at both history and the concerns all kids have when moving to a new home.

Lynne Avril is the illustrator of many amelia Bedelia books, including
Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School
