Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten Release Day: Emmy and Finn meet the Buffalo

Daniel's debut book as an illustrator is finally here! The Buffalo already has his share of fans (just look at Buffalo's Facebook page!), and now it's time for Emmy and Finn to meet him.




If Emmy likes it...



...then Finn has to check it out too.

I hope you'll consider getting a copy for all those kids about to start kindergarten that you know...or just for yourself!

Buy on Amazon (US)

Buy on Book Depository (international)

Tomorrow, Daniel will be sharing his 5 favorite picture books here on the blog, and then on Thursday, we'll hear from the book's author, Audrey Vernick, about her 5 favorite picture books. Then on Friday, you'll get to see some of the places the Buffalo has been spotted in the wild.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy release day! I agree with Sandy, it looks like Emmy and Fin are now ready for kindergarten as well :) I thought it was a really great book and I'm so happy I had a chance to look at it in NYC, so congratulations to Daniel. Lovely illustrations, and a great story too!

Looks like your little ones are ready for kittengarten! (or katzengarten if you prefer... but it sounds like a swearword to me...)

Lenore said...

Katzengarten! That's a good one!

I feel so privileged to know you and Daniel and pretty soon both of you will be rich and famous. We have been following this on facebook. I was glad we got to see it before anyone else. Looks like the cats like it too.
