Today is publication day of Dog Days of School. This book was written by Kelly DiPucchio and edited by Rotem Moscovich at Disney/Hyperion. Actually, she was the third editor on the book, as I signed on to do this thing way way back in, what, 2007 or 2008 or something like that. Everything Goes came along and took days off the calendar, and then The Boy Who Cried Alien had to get done, and finally last year after completing the third and final Everything Goes book, I took a few months and got this thing done.

And done it is. I love this book. I mean, okay, the illustrations are whatever. I like 'em and I hope you do too. But the book makes me laugh. When I read the script I knew that this was going to be a fun project. Freak Friday, but with a boy and a dog.

Here are some illustrations and sketches from the book. Please enjoy thanks.

A bunch of thumbnail sketches here. This is the form sketches come in when I first make them, and scan them. It's the hardest but most important part of the whole process, for me.
