Come Walk With Me is happy to welcome Penny Lockwood and Boo's Bad Day

Hi Penny, Welcome to Come Walk With me I'm so pleased you have come to visit. Tell us a bit about Boo's Bad Day. I love the cover, by the way.

Boo sneaks out of the house and discovers that freedom by himself can be scary.

Boo is a very bored kitten. When Timmy and his mom return home, Boo sneaks out of the house. Boo is frightened by the noises of the big world outside of the safety of his warm home. When Timmy coaxes Boo back into the house,
Boo realizes some places are safe and some are not.

  1. Hi Nancy, thanks for your ongoing support and for hosting me today on your blog. I hope I will be the first of many guests for you.

  2. Hi Penny, Glad to see your blog tour is going so well. I loved your book- the story with its subtle message and the beautiful illustrations. And I was so proud to be your first host on this month long tour, when you talked about the process of getting your picture book published. For those who missed it, it's here.

    Thrilled to be a hosting partner with you Nancy, my very dear editor.

  3. Hi, Penny, best of luck on your blog tour. You know, I certainly empathize with Boo... I had some of those same scary experiences "out there"...probably why I enjoy being a bit of a recluse. And, Nancy, what a lovely web page!
    My best to you both,

  4. Hi Penny...Hi Nancy:) Sweet book and I have some grandchildren that would love this book:)
    Congratulations, Penny. Nice blog, Nancy.

  5. Hi ladies, thanks for dropping by and visiting with Penny and Boo. Also, thanks for the compliments on the page. The pansies were in my front garden a couple of years ago and the pictures came out awesome. They just make me happy to look at them.
    Wonderful to blog partner with you Wendy, my oh so talented author

    Thank you for visiting Penny. It was a pleasure to have you here and I apologize again for the posting mixup which made us a bit late.


  6. Hi Wendy, Joelle, and Susan, thank you so much for coming by to visit with us, I know Nancy is happy to have a few visitors, too. Wendy, thank you again for your support during my blog tour. Everyone has been such fantastic hosts. Nancy, not to worry. I know how these things happen. It's not the first time, and it probably wont' be the last.

  7. Penny congratulations on this release, I love the cover too! And Nancy lovely blog, and how fun to see my favorite editors in one place. (Been out of loop because of heavy family stuff) but couldn't resist to come out and see you guys:) All the best with the release Penny:) I love picture books and will have to buy this for grand baby:)

    Cheers and hugs, Sara

  8. I, too, want this book. I have a two-year-old grandson who loves to look at pictures and pesters his mom to read to him. This book sounds like it has a great message and I know he would love it.

    Love the cover. And I do believe in starting tots young to enjoy books. It stays with them for life.
    Nice going, Penny.

  9. Hi Sara, thanks for stopping in. I've been thinking of you. If you get a copy, we'll have to get together so I can sign it for you!

    Lorrie, you're probably too far away for me to sign. I can send you a signed bookmark :-)

    I'm thrilled with all of Deb's illustrations.

  10. Still loving Boo and hoping to win a copy! ;)


    1. Hi Erin, I've been checking to see if there are any late comments on each of the blog. I don't want to miss anyone's name when it's time for the drawing. Glad I stopped and found you.

  11. Congratulations to Susan York Meyers! She's the winner of an autographed copy of Boo's Bad Day.
