I’ve added Wilbur’s name to the new version of the book about him that will have even more illustrations than the original. The new cover for Wilbur the Duck Who Flew Upside Down (aka “Wilbur”) also features the expressions on the faces of some of the other ducks in his flock as he flies upside down. The original cover only showed Wilbur due to its relatively small 8.5″ x 8.5″ trim size. The new book will be an 8.5″ x 11″ trim size so it allows for more space for an illustration. I believe the new cover is funnier and more attractive than its predecessor.
The original version of The Duck Who Flew Upside Down (aka “Duck”) is my most popular children’s book to date. It is also my personal favorite. I relate to Wilbur in many ways.
I plan to retire “Duck” when “Wilbur” is released, hopefully by the end of this month. It will be available on Amazon and elsewhere. If you’d prefer signed copies, perhaps with a note to the recipient, I’m taking advance orders for U.S. residents for $20 each and I’ll pay for the shipping via U.S. Media Mail.
In case you’re wondering why I don’t make the offer globally, the problem is highlighted in a recent example: I shipped four books to someone outside the U.S. and the mailing cost nearly equaled the total retail cost of the books. I still love my dear friends who reside outside the U.S. and am grateful that most of you can still buy my books via Amazon (and possibly even get free shipping.)
