Cover Reveal: THE VERY LAST LEAF by Stef Wade

I'm thrilled to reveal the cover for Stef Wade's next picture book THE VERY LAST LEAF, illustrated by Jennifer Davison, which comes out August 1, 2020 with Capstone! 
Lance Cottonwood is the best and brightest of the leaves, but even the top students on the tree have worries. Can Lance conquer his fear of falling and just let go when the time comes for his final exam, or will he let his worries take over? 
In this funny and encouraging picture book, best-selling author Stef Wade (A Place for Pluto) tells an engaging story and deftly addresses social and emotional struggles many kids encounter each day...feeling anxious, wanting to be perfect, facing fears, etc. These themes combined with illustrator Jennifer Davison's delightful characters and rich autumnal colors make The Very Last Leaf a perfect book for the start of a new school year, the arrival of autumn, or any period of transition in life.
Ok, get ready, the cover is about to be revealed!!
