This is one of my favorite illustrations from the book, "My African Bedtime Rhymes" by Brettell Hone. I illustrated this last year and it is now available at Amazon.comand Barnes and Noble and other bookstores.

Such a wonderful piece of art Ginger! The colors and lighting are wonderful. Love how you have the yellow of the leaf highlighting the mouse and the lighting on the owls face is really great. You can really feel the drama in it all. Fantastic!
