SAM & EVA by Debbie Ridpath Ohi

Launching Oct. 17, 2017

Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers

ISBN-10: 1481416286 | ISBN-13: 9781481416283

Harold and the Purple Crayon meets Tom and Jerry in this sweet and funny picture book about a boy and girl who must balance their creativity and figure out how to cooperate after their drawings come to life.

When Sam starts drawing a super cool velociraptor, Eva decides to join in. But Sam isn’t too happy about the collaboration. Soon Eva and Sam are locked in an epic creative clash, bringing to life everything from superhero marmots to exploding confetti. But when their masterpieces turn to mayhem will Sam stay stubbornly solo or will he realize that sometimes the best work comes from teamwork?



This will eventually become the fantabulous bonus page for SAM & EVA, Debbie's second solo picture book. SAM & EVA launches from Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers in October 17, 2017.
