I will occasionally take on a commission from an individual person and this is one I did a few years ago. A really great story idea on this one!
It’s officially June so I guess summer is kinda here… let the chariot races begin!
One of the very first storybook jobs I ever got was a two book series about a little boy called Theodore Bump. Several decades later the author contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a third Theodore Bump book… absolutely!… Continue Reading “Theodore Bump”
