Bethany Hegedus releases new picture book

Congratulations to Austin SCBWI member Bethany Hegedus on the publication of her newest picture book, Huddle Up! Cuddle Up!  The book, illustrated by Michael Deas, released on August 25th from Viking Books for Young Readers.

The picture book features a unique and humorous twist on the bedtime ritual.  In this “football/bedtime mash-up,” the Dream Team gets suited up in their pajamas and races the countdown clock to get ready for bed.

Bethany, who is the founder and creative director of The Writing Barn, is also the author of several other picture books and middle-grade novels, including Grandfather Gandhi and Be the Change: A Grandfather Gandhi Story (both co-written with Arun Gandhi).

Huddle Up! Cuddle Up! has been chosen by Amazon as a Best Book of the Month for Ages 3-5.
