2021 TD Grade One Book Giveaway copies of #MalaikasCostume!
This book takes me all the way back at 2016 when Malaika's Costume was first published.
This was my very first picture book and it was illustrated by #IreneLuxbacher. Irene has worked hard to redo and revise several illustrations for the TD Grade One Book Giveaway 2021. I think they look gorgeous. (One revised illustration is shown here.)
My editor at the time, the late Sheila Barry, said Malaika's Costume would be big before I even signed the contract. I still wonder how she knew.
I've taken this story all over the world and now over 550,000 children will get a copy.
