Happy Book Birthday, Little Author




















LITTLE AUTHOR IN THE BIG WOODS is officially out in the world today!

Working on this book brought back so many good memories from childhood. (Yes, I wanted to be Laura.**) I was a huge fan of the Little House books and the TV show, of course. (Who wasn't, growing up in the 70's?!)

Here are some very early rough sketches, and a few pieces from the book. Also, there's still time to enter the Goodreads giveaway here.) Enjoy!

I think you were the perfect illustrator for this project!! I love your sketches and can't wait to see the book. Fist-pump to the bonnet, just like the one I wore when I was Laura for Halloween. ; )
