Just published yesterday by Scholastic, this is a ‘peek and find’ book with all sorts of animals hiding in Millie’s garden. This was a lovely project to work on, originally inspired by a picture from my portfolio –  ‘Rosie’s Garden’. The design gave me lots of scope for pattern and texture- in fact I had to rein it in a bit, as it got a bit too busy. Thanks to Rebecca Essilifie, the designer, for keeping me on track! There is a die cut peephole on the cover, and lots of embossing to add a tactile dimension. Here are a couple of spreads from the book- without the flaps that conceal the animals.
