May I Please Have a Cookie? - Kindle edition

I was confused when I saw May I Please Have a Cookie?  under hot new releases on Amazon but then realized this is for a new Kindle edition of the book. The Kindle edition will be available Aug 30th.

Lemonade Hurricane in Korean!

It's always neat to see one of my book babies translated into another language.  I just received a new copy of Lemonade Hurricane in Korean!

In the past the words have been translated and the pictures have stayed the same.  But there are a couple of scenes in Lemonade Hurricane where I showed Emma and Henry taking Taekwondo lessons.  I didn't put official patches on their uniforms (I'm always worried about the copyright police coming after me!)  But it was cool to see the Korean publisher changed the patches on Henry's dobok to look like the official Korean Taekwondo Association patches.

Phew, so glad that I drew the Korean flag correctly!
