Today is the official launch day of the first in a series of three children's books by author Yvette Poshoglian (of Ella and Olivia fame).

It's called the 'Puppy Diary' and is targeting 5 to 8 year old boys and girls.

I was honoured to be given the opportunity of creating the character designs and illustrating the cover and interiors. It is ironic that I have just finished the second book on the day the first book is in stores!.It is very surreal to see it in the stores with children checking it out, knowing all the time I have put into it.

The book looks really exciting, and Scholastic have a done a great job putting it together. Here's to it selling well and a future series happening as a result.They are in all general book stores, and in general department stores such as Target, Big W and K-Mart...which has been brilliant to get those carrying it..

Here is the final cover spread of Puppy Diary, the first book of a new series by Yvette Poshoglian. They did a great job on both the cover design and title choice....thanks again to Laura at Scholastic who is a dream editor to work with and Yvette Poshoglian for giving me a great set of characters and stories to illustrate...
