This book and two others (Bop's Hiccups and pop-in-the-slot novelty book An Island Adventure) are released today.
I illustrated this one by building a kit of parts and puppets, similar to the way the original show was done. The kit was passed on to Davide Arnone (an old friend and one of the main animators in charge of Abney). He has used the kit, adding his own parts, to illustrate the other two, and is currently working on several more. The texts were written by Stella Gurney.

A painting I did as a gift for Lisbeth Zwerger. She was signing books at The Illustration Cupboard early this evening, and the show is on tomorrow as well.
The new Tales from the Brothers Grimm is beautiful, although I'm annoyed that she beat me to illustrating Hans My Hedgehog. (In a book anyway, I stuck him on here a while ago).
