Two new books from 4RV

I am delighted to say that two new books I illustrated have been released by 4RV Publishing, LLC.

The continued adventures of Dilly the Pickle loving rat, by Rena Jones is a heartwarming and humorous romp through an alphabet of possible new friends.  His final choice will lead him right into a new story I am sure.

Another new book, Sammy the Shivering Snowblower, really hit home with me.  Living in the northern New England area we are used to snow and having any kind of help removing the mountains of the white stuff is key to getting where you want to go.  Sammy's story is written beautifully by Mike McNair. He has a flair for humor and pairs that with a genuine care for feelings that we all share.

My basic problem was finding just the right kind of representation for Sammy.  The final cover shows poor Sammy shivering away in the snow. I ended up using our own snowblower as a model of sorts *:)

Both of these books are available on the 4RV Publishing site.  There is a sale going on until Dec. 5.
