Shane is known for his middle grade writing, including Darkmouth, Boot and The Shop of Impossible Ice Creams. Of this new picture book he says: “I am thrilled that Hachette Children’s Group will be bringing my first picture book to young readers, I’ve long enjoyed the magic of a clever, catchy tale brought to life with captivating illustrations, and which can be read over and over again. I’m hoping young readers – and the grown-ups reading with them- will find much to love in these stories.”
