My Thanksgiving book- RE-ISSUED!

GOOD NEWS! After nearly 25 years in print and 10 years out of print (and many twists and turns), HarperCollins has decided to bring my version of THANKSGIVING AT THE TAPPLETONS' back in print for Fall 2015!

I am thrilled that my illustrated version of Eileen Spinelli's classic book will soon be available again! (I posted about my Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' publishing saga in Nov. 2013. Scroll to read.)  Thank you readers for contacting HarperCollins or writing your thoughts online, asking that they "bring back the people". I'll be illustrating a brand new cover, but other than that, it will be the book you remember. (For those who don't know this book…please look for it in the Fall of 2015…It will soon become your favorite Thanksgiving book too!)

Thanksgiving has come early for me. Thank you to the parents, grandparents and teachers who have continued to love my Tappleton family. A special thanks to  Eileen Spinelli for writing a timeless story, and to HarperCollins for bringing my version back in print!

(But let's not rush the seasons…Happy Spring!)
With a grateful heart-
Maryann

I am SO happy to read this! I came upon your blog as I went searching online for your version of the book to purchase. We borrowed it from the public library two years ago and then were unable to get it last year, so I really wanted my own copy but not with wolves! I wish the reissue was available this year but will try to borrow it from the library once again and definitely look forward to purchasing it next year!
