Brilliant Books

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.
