As some of you know, A NEW FRIEND FOR DILLY was due to be released July 1st, but we've hit a delay and are changing illustrators. Ginger Nielson has graciously taken over the job of drawing Dilly and is in the process of illustrating the second book. I've seen a few samples and it looks like it's going to be just as cute as the first one. Here is a sample of the cover, although it's a little fuzzy. I'll try to get another version soon to post on the website, my blog, and so forth. I was sorry to see Dilly's first illustrator Lisa Oakman go, but I'm sure Ginger will give our little, pickle-loving rat just as much charm and personality.
