The Proofs have arrived

It is really exciting when you get to see the galley proofs of a book you just illustrated and they look great!

So many times the color can be a bit off, or some spreads don't match perfectly, but this time I am just thrilled that the proofs look great in all respects: color, design, and alignment.  The book, "Flying Poodles, A Christmas Story" by Karen Morss is due out later this fall in time for Christmas.  Her vision and her story are a combination of fantasy and reality and I know children and adults will enjoy her version of a Christmas Eve miracle.

In addition to the book an iPad version is also being finalized and will include audio featuring some of Karen's young neighbors as the voices of the poodles.

Thank you so much. The author , Karen Morss is a spectacular lady. You can google, Lemon Ladies to find out about her tenacity and her vision. A portion of the proceeds from all books is going to the SMILE TRAIN which Karen supports. It provides needed funds for children in need as well as providing cleft-related training to doctors.
