Cesar Takes a Break ! by my friend and critique partner Sue Collins Thoms

I'm so excited as I type these words. My friend and critique partner Sue Thoms's first picture book Cesar Takes a Break can now be found and pre-ordered at amazon.com.
I remember quite well the first time that Sue submitted Cesar's story to our online critique group. Cesar had it all: a mischievous personality with just a spark of diva quality to him, and lots of humor. He was irresistible, and we all loved him. Eventually, Meredith Wasinger, from Sterling, decided that she loved him too. They found a wonderful illustrator: Rogé, from Quebec, and now, the book will be released on March 4, 2008.

Just run to get your copy. I promise that you won't be disappointed. And do watch out for Sue Collins Thoms in the future, because that lady is incredibly talented. And I said this long before she was published, right, Sue? So that makes me double proud ! I'll post an interview of Sue in this blog, soon. In the meantime, look at Cesar chilling out. Didn't I tell you he's irresistible? Wait until you read about his adventures in the elementary school where he's taken up permanent residence, and you'll love him even more.

Wow, I can't wait to check it out! The artwork is gorgeous! Meredith was my partner for the One-on-One Conference in Rutgers this year, and she was terrific.

BTW, that class with Uma sounds amazing!

Hi, Linda. Wait until you read the text. It's great, too. As for Uma's class, if you feel like taking one class some day, I definitely recommend that one.

Yow, Katia. Thank you!
Cesar owes a lot to you and your thoughtful critiques. He wouldn't be the iguana he is today without you.
