I Love You, Blankie.
By Sheryl Haft

 Click on images to enlarge.
I Love You, Blankie, beautifully written by Sheryl Haft and published by Little, Brown and Company goes on sale in the USA today! It will be available in the UK shortly.

I Love You, Blankie is a great bedtime story for little ones. 'A flowing sail, a hot air balloon, a fluffy cloud, a glowing moon. With a little imagination a blankie can be anything!'

I'd like to thank Sheryl for all her input on the visuals for the book. It was very much a joint project. I'd also like to thank the team at Little Brown for all their support.

One that got away!
A favourite sketch.

Milk, Bread, Dinner, Percy Pigs!

I spotted this billboard at the weekend. Percy is now 
an everyday essential!

Ladybird Books
at the De La Warr Pavilion

Two favourite things! Vintage Ladybird Books and the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill! Bexhill is just along the coast so we popped over last weekend to see the new Ladybird exhibition. It is well worth a visit. There is a great selection of original artwork. It's free too!!

 I am especially drawn to the books that take me back to my childhood. The quilted anoraks, Start-Rite shoes and Spangles (sweets)!

I can almost smell my primary school when I look at these pictures! One not so great memory was the little bottle of warm milk we had to drink every morning!
