Illustrate of the Nation Address

Well hello there.

Apologies for a short lack of updates, but hopefully all this weather we're having heaped into our laps is keeping you outside in the real world and breathing in that fresh stuff you need to stand up.

I'm here to e-bother you today with news about your friend and mine, Mike, the man responsible for translating my words into beautiful visions for the benefit of your peepers. He's been so noticed through our campaign that he has now been picked up by the wonderful illustration agency, Catbird and proudly sits alongside some of the finest kids lit artists around at the moment.

You can read a bit more on their site about Mike, as he is currently their featured illustrator! Send your browser over in this direction.

With our book ticking over nicely (and now on the downhill to that 100% goal), this is a real feather in our caps and I really hope goes to show you just how talented and respected in the field Mike is. I'm delighted he's working on The Monster Café with me.

While we are well on our way with pledges, it would be great if you could help spread the word so we reach our goal. If you have friends, sisters, brothers, distant relatives, heck even dogs and rabbits with young kids, then do point them in our direction. The sooner this thing is funded, the sooner you'll get it into the hands of your tiny tinkers. 

Cheers dears, speak soon, x!
