Greetings from Hopewell Springs, the home of author, illustrator, teacher, dog guy, and cat guy, 
Michael J. Rosen.

Thanks so much for sharing in these book adventures. New titles: The Tale of Rescue, a novel for all ages. Coming out in October.

This page is a preliminary sketch by Stan Fellows for the book. Others follow after the link. (Other sketches are available for purchase. Please inquire for details.)

And there’s a new picture book for young and grown-up cat people: The Maine Coon’s Haiku and Other Poems for Cat Lovers. “The perfect paean to pusscats,” about which the starred SLJ review says, “The brevity and poignancy of the haiku format perfectly capture the feline essence in this book of verse.” Starred reviews in Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, and a Parents’ Choice Award.
