Recently I was contacted by a firm in the UK that specializes in wall murals and prints.
Here is a link to the images that I have contributed to the site.
Once in a while I have time for creating a book of my own. I approach this very carefully because I always want it to be something both children and adults will enjoy.
The story of Bjorn and Refur is retold from an old Norse legend. Today bears have short tails. They are rather stumpy and insignificant. But of course that is not the whole story. Once, long ago, they had great, bushy, luxurious tails. Bjorn, the bear, and Refur the sly fox have an encounter that leads to consequences for the bear.
I am not saying Bjorn was stupid, or anything like that. He was simply so trusting and hungry that he was easily fooled by the lie that the fox told.
The book, Bjorn and Refur, should delight young and old. It should be out by Spring of 2021.
New this year is the launch of my imprint "Carrot Flower Books" These are the books that I havewritten and also illustrated. They are designed for the young readers and those who may still need a book that needs no words to explain. I like to create a story that once heard can enable a child to "read" alone just by looking at the pictures. That being said, reading to your child is one of the great benefits of having that closeness and time for bonding. Reading to your child, taking your child to the library ... virtual or otherwise... is one key to learning and development.
New in the little store on my website is: Maxwell and the Very Big Cookie.
Maxwell is one of the hungriest piglets on farmer Bruce's farm.
