Our book, Up in the Leaves, The True Story of the Central Park Treehouses is on shelves today! It was a joy getting to illustrate Shira Boss's thoughtful telling of Bob Redman's childhood adventures. I'll be sharing more from the book in the coming weeks. It's available at your local bookseller and at Amazon
