I’m so excited to share the “unofficial” cover of The Peddler’s Bed with my blog fans, Twitter followers, and Facebook friends! It is unofficial because changes are still possible, but publisher Ripple Grove Press was super kind to permit me to post it now. And how could I pass up the opportunity to share something so beautiful! Illustrator Bong Redila is fantastic and has a style all his own! I’m extremely pleased to have my name on a book cover next to his.   

Title: The Peddler’s Bed

Author: Lauri Fortino

Illustrator: Bong Redila

Publisher: Ripple Grove Press

Genre: Fictional Picture Book

Release Date: Fall 2015

See what happens when a peddler tries to sell a fine, handcrafted bed to a poor man who has no bed at all.

  1. What a beautiful cover, and intriguing story idea! I also love that they gave you photos of the illustrations in progress.

    This has been such an exciting year for you. Ripple Grove, MeeGenius–is there a novel out there, too? I’m trying to remember and will have to explore your website after church. Congratulations again on everything!

    • Thanks so much, Sonja! I’m super excited about this cover and can’t wait to see the rest of the illustrations. But I do have to wait since the release is not until next fall. I’m also looking forward to seeing The Dinosaur Tag Survival Guide completed, as I’m sure you’re eagerly awaiting your MeeGenius book too. No novel; right now I’m sticking to picture books. Thanks for commenting!
