I'm so excited to announce my first Little Golden Book, It's Time for Bubble Puppy! was recently released! I've always wanted illustrate a Little Golden Book, and I'm so happy Nickelodeon and Random House offered me this wonderful opportunity. I was familiar with the show before working on the book, and it was a pleasure to illustrate such appealing and charming characters.
Here's a snippet of what's written on the back cover. It pretty much sums up why I loved working on this:
"Children have loved Little Golden Books for over 60 years. They have written their names inside each front cover and delighted in the colorful pictures and wonderful stories. Thanks to the happy hours spent with such books as The Poky Little Puppy, many children have developed a lifelong love of reading."
I'm also celebrating the release of this book with a giveaway! Just leave a comment on this post (along with your name and email by February 14th, 2012), I will draw a name, announce the winner, and mail out one signed copy of the book. A free book for you, and a fun thing for me to do. Win, win!
