Moon Child is Launched
















Last fall when Otter, Raccoon and Owl first appeared in my studio, Raccoon immediately began chewing on my pastels while Otter (who was a bit soggy) lumbered about, dragging some slimy kelp.  Owl, for her part, settled onto a stack of old sketches and soon fell asleep. Obviously I had to put them in a book, and the result, Moon Child, was officially published yesterday.  It already has a great review in Kirkus and is featured in Parenting Magazine Moon Child is written by Nadia Krilanovich & published by Tricycle Press|Random House.

"... Sayles’s pastel-and-acrylic illustrations beautifully capture the sense of wonder the young animals have for the luminous full moon. Her night is a place of magic where water holds stars and anything is possible. " (Picture book. 2-6) --Kirkus Review
