How Anansi Got His Stories now published!

I'm so excited seeing the book in print at last. I finished the illustrations in early spring, and they have reproduced really well, with all the colours just as I'd hoped. Oxford University Press have chosen and arranged the type, including the cut-out typeface on the cover, which I think looks great. Here is a selection from the 32 page book.

My children used to bring the Oxford Reading Tree books back from primary school to read at home, as part of their homework. So I felt really chuffed to be involved in illustrating one of them - my homework this time! The story is a great one, too, about a trickster spider, which has been retold in a fun way by Trish Cooke.
