So these are some character sketches from the new book I'm working on with Helen Ketteman - author of Armadilly Chili and The Three Little Gators among many others. This book is due out next year from Albert Whitman. Senorita Gordita is a re-telling of the little ginger bread man story in a south west flavor. It's full of fun characters and desert imagery and plenty of fun chase scenes. In short - I'm having way too much fun to be getting paid - don't tell A.W.
