Testing a New Picture Book

Testing Spike

Testing Spike

I test-read my books throughout the process of creating each picture book but this is the FIRST time I have ever had someone ELSE test-read the book…The book is very nearly done, with only a one-off proof of SPIKE, Ugliest Dog in the Universe, and the marvelous librarian, Julie Reimer *, read it while I sat back and watched! I learned so much that I made THREE changes at this late, late stage and will never publish without this step again.
