On July 4, 2011, my Grandmother, my brother, and myself decided to create and publish a pop-up book about our longtime favorite vacation spot, Rehoboth Beach DE. The book is complete and should hit shelves July 12th, 2012.

The story follows a family as they spend 'A Day in Rehoboth Beach'. Here they are at the beach off the boardwalk.

This is my favorite page, the horses on the merry-go-round actually move up and down as you open the book.

Here, the family is enjoying a rock concert at the bandstand on Rehoboth Avenue.

This is the first time I've really worked professionally with my brother and Grandmother, and I couldn't have been more impressed. It was really a wonderful experience.
My brother, Brian Allen did all the Illustrations. My Grandmother, Joanne Defiore wrote the story, did the Calligraphy, and handled all the marketing. I handled all the popups and production work.
