"Hats Off!" is a book about a boy who is filled with imagination. In this silly story, Benjamin and his mom go to the zoo for a fun-filled day with the animals.  But when Benjamin arrives, he finds a surprise... a zoo filled with animals...all wearing hats!  At first he doesn't believe his eyes, then he sees one animal after another with a different hat.  

This project, our first book, is a long time in the making.  The day Woody and I met, we talked about doing a children's book together. Woody was an artist in school studying illustrating and I was a writer.  That was almost fifteen years ago!  We've talked about collaborating on projects all these years, but finally we are joining forces to create our first children's book.

The book will be a softcover, 32 page picture book, and available for sale once published.  But you can reserve your signed copy now by pledging!  Kids are sure to enjoy this rhyming tale with colorful, fun pictures.

Please join us and help make this project come to life.  Any amount you can give will help.  There are some cool rewards offered for your contribution, check them out!  Thank you, we appreciate you!

Here is a sample spread from the book:

Here are some concept sketches:
