Children’s Book featuring Alleke

Book Cover: Clara Has a Baby Brother

I’ll be doing my first ever book signing this Saturday in Madrid. It’s a children’s book called Clara Has a Baby Brother. It’s bilingual in English and Spanish, and Alleke is the protagonist. Also, Alejandra Quiceno ( will be showing 12 of her illustrations for kids and also doing face painting. We’ll see if I can convince April to make some of her famous chocolate-chip cookies!

If you’re so unlucky as not to live in Madrid, and thus, will not be in attendance this Saturday, BUT you’re still eagerly awaiting the chance to get your hands on this fine piece of literature for the very youngest of readers, well, there’s hope for you! The book should magically appear on Amazon in the next couple weeks. I’ll keep you posted! Also, if there’s interest in getting a peek at the book online before it’s officially released, leave a comment, and I’ll see what I can do!
