I’m back at my desk and my mind is full of festive images…Christmas sing-a-longs, snow-covered hill-tops, purple clouds over a golden sunset, hoicking our friend out of a muddy puddle on a country walk (we nearly had to sacrifice his wellies!). Good times.
Waiting for me on my return was a very exciting parcel; an advance copy of a picture book I worked on last year for Little Door Books. It’s called How Billy Hippo Learned to Swim and is about a little hippo who hates water. It’s a lovely story written by the super-amazing Vivian French. Little Door Books were fantastic to work for; hugely supportive, thoughtful, and massively committed to producing beautiful children’s books. I learnt loads and am thrilled to bits with the final copy. Billy Hippo is out in March so I’ll keep you posted!
