My new children's book is out!!!!

After a long wait, I am happy to share the news that my new children's book I illustrated titled "Staarabu was Wise, Anana was Gentle" is now out on the market!!!! The official release was last Friday the 11th, but didn't get a chance to post about it until now. The book was a blast to work on and am very excited to see the book in person tomorrow to see how the illustrations came thru in the printing. If you are interested in picking up a copy, you can get it here.

Here is a little blurb about the book:

Staarabu Was Wise, Anana Was Gentle is beautifully illustrated and cleverly written in verse. It tells the story of two young animals on the African plain. Their families are facing homelessness due to a life threatening drought and they decide to solve the problem. Although they are inexperienced and afraid, they find the courage and display the creativity necessary to restore water to their homes. In the process, Staarabu and Anana experience an exciting journey; one that leaves them much more confident in themselves.
