Waking Up Is Hard To Do was the first picture book I illustrated. It was a collaboration with Imagine Books and singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka. The book comes with a three song CD.
The story is a reinvention of Neil's classic hit Breaking Up Is Hard To Do. A young alligator is struggling to wake up and make it to the bus on time.
It was featured on the Today Show when it came out. Check out the interview with Neil here.
