I am thrilled to say that I recently signed contracts for a new picture book!
How Rude! will be illustrated by the brilliant Olivier Tallec and is due to be published by Words and Pictures, at Quarto, this October!
Here’s a little bit about it;
When Duck shows up at Dot’s tea party, Dot has no idea just how rude a guest Duck can be. From licking sandwich fillings to spitting tea everywhere… Duck gets ruder and ruder… and ruder! How will Dot react to such behaviour? A simple yet hilarious story with an important message and touching ending.
And here’s part of an internal sketch to whet your appetite;
Olivier’s work is full of humour; the perfect match for this text. You may have seen some of his other work. Here’s a selection and a link to his website in case not!
Duck and Dot will also be winging their way to the US to cause chaos! Wooohooo! Available from the Quarto website on 18th October.
Only 3 ish months to go!
I hope you like it!
