Dear Friends,

The Cottagers are going on a brief summer vacation. We are *temporarily* leaving the Cottage so that we can spend some time with our families, write stories, have a few adventures, and of course, plan our content for the coming 2015/2016 season. (Mr. Pig already has a few surprise guests booked!)

Thank you for making our second year in the Cottage so wonderful! We've thoroughly enjoyed your visits, and our many entertaining chats with fabulous children's book characters--and their creators. 

Thanks for reading, commenting, tweeting, sharing and cheering us on! We'll be back with all-new goodies for you on September 1st. Until then, read lots of books, and have a safe, happy and wonder-filled summer. Be sure to come visit us in September when we reopen the Cottage and gear up for back-to-school!

We'll put the kettle on for you.

With gratitude,
~The Cottagers
(Jamie Michalak, Anika Denise, Kara LaReau, Kristen Tracy -- and Mr. Pig)
