GERALDINE is a picture book I wrote and illustrated. It is about a giraffe girl named Geraldine, who moves from giraffe school to a human school, where she is the only giraffe. She doesn't fit in, literally or figuratively, and has to figure out how to make a friend and be happy in a world where she is always too tall. It is due out from Neal Porter Books, an imprint of Roaring Brook Press, in 2018.
