I'm going to risk humiliating myself to make an important point about writing picture books.The pages below are from the original draft of Waiting for Gregory that I sent to my editor, Christy, eleven years ago. Thankfully, she rejected it. The rest of the story takes place in a hospital waiting room. Can't you imagine the picture possibilities? The clock, a couch, chairs...the clock, a couch, chairs...That draft proves I didn't know a thing about writing picture books.
