The 🐷🐷🐷 are out of the bag! It was announced this week @joshfunkbooks and my fourth book together “It’s Not The Three Little Pigs”. These three have made appearances in the previous three “It’s Not” books. So I’m excited for you all to get to meet these silly characters (and others, ahem.). So keep an eye out for further announcements! It’ll be out Fall 2022!

Today is the book birthday for Troy Wilson and my book, “Goldibooks and the Wee Bear” (Running Press). It takes the classic Goldlocks fairy tale and puts a spin on it. Instead Wee Bear breaks into Goldibook’s house and finds books! Its message that despite their differences, reading can bring people together.
This next five are F for Fantastic Mr. Fox, G for Gruffalo, H for Hardy Har Har, I for Iago, and J for Jiji.
It’s Little Red’s Book Birthday! “It’s Not Little Red Riding Hood” written by Josh Funk and illustrated by myself premiers today! Hope everyone enjoys Red’s Not so familiar rendition of the events to Grandma’s house. Also keep an eye out for the various fairy tale characters and familiar items I’ve sprinkled throughout the book.
It’s here! The official cover for IT’S NOT LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD – available for preorder now (out 10.27.20), revealed exclusively by @hereweeread (everyone follow her for amazing book suggestions). http://hereweeread.com/2020/01/cover-reveal-its-not-little-red-riding-hood-by-josh-funk.html
Here’s a little about the book: Little Red likes to play by the rules. So when the narrator comes along and asks her to follow the story set out in her fairy tale, she grabs the basket for Grandma and goes. After all, she loves her Grandma.
But as Little Red attempts to follow the narrator’s directions (WHICH, FRANKLY, SEEM KIND OF DANGEROUS!), she is beset by fill-in characters, confusing instructions, and even a fierce battle! Will Little Red ever make it to Grandma’s house? And who will she find when she gets there?
Complete with some unusual guest appearances, this laugh-out-loud Little Red Riding Hood retelling will have kids giggling all the way to Grandma’s house!
This is the third book in the “It’s Not a Fairy Tale” series following IT’S NOT JACK AND THE BEANSTALK and IT’S NOT HANSEL AND GRETEL (both available now).
