I am currently working on several picture book manuscripts. Some of my favorite characters include a snail, an elf and too many sassy, smart, brave, funny kids to count.
I'm proud to announce my debut picture book, Who Will? Will You? published through www.bluewhalepress.com/ The illustrator for the book is the awesomely talented Milanka Reardon. You can see her work at www.milankareardon.com The book will be out in August of 2019, but here's the pre-order link: www.amazon.com/Who-Will-You-Sarah-Hoppe/dp/1732893519/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Who+Will%3F+Will+You%3F+Sarah+Hoppe&qid=1560522372&s=gateway&sr=8-1&fbclid=IwAR3tMipTG-YD3RRCNWgNbyjvBU9a_QMPB-2jRGdLJc0lhjEv-XBpabjhADs
Here's an excerpt from Kirkus Reviews:
Reardon’s realistic pastel-and-ink illustrations, populated with humans with a variety of skin tones, do an excellent job of hiding the identity of the pup and showing the adults’ shocked expressions. Hoppe uses clever science-related questions (“Does the pup have super-cool senses to help find its food?”) to encourage readers to guess the animal’s identity and to think about how different animals share similar qualities. A beautifully illustrated tale that’s sure to appeal to animal lovers and budding environmentalists.” —Kirkus Reviews
