A new book

One of the books I worked on last year over the summer has been recently released in the UK! :)

Ladybird First Favourite Christmas Book published by Penguin/Ladybird is a sturdy, padded cover board book with fun christmas content for the little ones. You'll find christmas songs, carols and the story of christmas at the very end.

It features full page color illustrations. I had to work very big for this book and I wanted the kids to enjoy all the beauty and magic of christmas so I really pumped up my color. I wanted those pages to pop. I tried to leave little fun details for the kids to look at while singing the song or reading the story.

I'm still waiting for my copies to arrive. Can't wait to see them! It's one of my favorite things of being a children's illustrator, holding that big FedEx box in my hands and having my kids help open it! :)
