Book Birthday: Bagel In Love

January 02, 2018

Today marks the birthday of Bagel in Love!

This story is chock full of puns and brightly-colored and animated baked goods. Plus there's glitter on the cover and on the final double spread. Helen Dardik digitally illustrated the story and brought so much energy and cuteness to the characters that it inspired me to have a dress designed to wear at book events! 

                                                                                                                                          Photo by Scott Olds

The inset you see on the bodice is from the end pages - it made some adorable material!

Colorado State University fashion student, Cameron Utter, designed and sewed the dress.

Colorado State University fashion alumnus, Roxanne Storlie, stitched on the embroidery.

And now I get to wear it to book events!

Thank you, Sterling Children's Books, for seeing the silliness of my story and bringing out the heart in it!
