Most marshmallows are born into marshmallow families, play with marshmallow friends, and go to marshmallow school where they learn to be squishy. Most marshmallows read a book before bed and then fall asleep to dream ordinary marshmallow dreams. Is this book about most marshmallows? It isn't. Because Rowboat Watkins knows that just like you, some marshmallows have big dreams, and just like you, these marshmallows can do anything they set their minds to. This sweet and silly book is an inspiring reminder that by being true to ourselves each of us can be truly extraordinary.
Rowboat Watkins was a recipient of the 2010 Sendak Fellowship. His book Rude Cakes was an Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book and his most recent title, Big Bunny, was lauded by the New York Times as "homey yet mind-bending." Rowboat lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.
