It's almost time! DRESS LIKE A GIRL will be out in the world in NINE days!
I'd like to invite my Chicago area friends to come join me at two upcoming signings.
The first is on January 26th, 11 am, at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville. Josh Funk will be joining me to celebrate the third book in a series - MISSION DEFROSTABLE! We're working on ideas of what kind of mischief we can get up to...
Another signing is on February 2nd, 10:30 am, at 57th Street Books in Hyde Park. I'll be hosting a story time and tidbits about writing.
I hope to see you there!
DRESS LIKE A GIRL has received another wonderful review, this time from Publishers Weekly. The reviewer had lovely things to say about Lorian Tu-Dean's illustrations, as well as the text by yours truly:
"Tu-Dean captures the joy of dressing up, friendship and discovery in her mixed-media art. Fashion in limitless and fun, Toht suggests - but it's not so much the clothes that matter as the individual underneath."

It's a bit nerve-wracking, waiting for the first review of a new book to come in! Well, Kirkus Reviews had some lovely things to say about DRESS LIKE A GIRL:
"...this book encourages girls to broaden their horizons beyond princesses and fairies."
"The ink-and-watercolor illustrations render lively children against spare backgrounds of rooms throughout the house that adapt to the girls' imaginations."
"A cute reflection of girl-centric playtime, role play, and friendship."
Thank you, Kirkus!
DRESS LIKE A GIRL will be released on January 22, 2019. It is available for pre-order now through IndieBound, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.com.
