These early stages resulted in quite an adventurous venture - not just to write - but above all to develop a one-of-a-kind tool for a crammed children's bookstore. In 2009 alone, almost 22,000 children's novels were released in the USA, and we dared to make the leap and learn from our errors.

Began to illustrate the storyline with Photoshop CS3. This is a photographic narrative that is quite a one-of-a-kind feature in children's illustrated book collections.
Collaborate with a child bookstylist. We were satisfied with the development of the illustration as a wealth of the history's graphic backgrounds.
