Below is a sneak peek at our next book, "Talking Tiger is Tough."
This announcement is nearly three months after my last release. I got stuck on testing new illustration designs. Now I am making good progress on completing the illustrations and am a third of the way there.
Below is the current front and back cover as approved by Abigail.
Let us know what you think. As with life, things could change any moment! But, I am happy for now.
I wrote the original story two years ago. Abigail was 4-years old and fascinated by tigers. Actually, she loves all types of cats, big and small. Roaring was the first animal noise she could make. That’s why she got to be a lion for her 2nd Halloween. I am not sure why she decided to embody the traits of a tiger. Kids usually go for the dog first when they decided to lap water from a bowl and pretend their cereal is kibble. Regardless, she committed herself to roaring responses. It was funny and cute at first, but I didn’t always understand what she meant. The story followed. We started with her tiger portrait and talked, in human, about her favorite games and food.
Now, it took time to finish my first two books. I based the first book on Abigail, and the second on a composition of Abigail and her younger sister Eleanor. When it came to this story Abigail insisted that it be a story about a pair of sisters. So I rewrote it with a set of sisters that represent my 6 and 2-year old girls.
Abigail continued to inspire, write, and design the book. She is preparing herself to be an author/illustrator like her mom.
