Hello everyone! I’m so excited to reveal the cover of my debut picture book, A River of Dust: The Life-Giving Link Between North Africa and the Amazon on VIvian Kirkfield’s blog!!! In the flat screen image, you won’t be able to see the foil that illuminates the dust. You’ll have to hold it in your hands for that. Looking forward to July 2023!!
