It's official. My latest Corduroy board book "Merry Christmas Corduroy" by Viking Books, will be in stores Fall 2020. Many, many are working on it right now. I just got the cover image and here it is.




I'm trying to get all done for the next one "Happy Easter Corduroy" as fast as I can!

I saw RuPaul many years ago in a popup surprise show at a club in NYC and he looks JUST THE SAME!!, I don't : )
