This is the first spread in my new book, Little Mole Brings His Friends. When Rabbit decides to have a potluck, Little Mole invites other animals and after everyone refuses, he ends up going to the party with a discombobulated bee and a turnip.
It’s a bedtime book for little people. There are short sentences, bright colors, and animal characters. The inspiration for the story came from an article about the effect of climate change on endangered species.
The first edition is available at Blurb.com. This print-on-demand service is used mostly for books of photography, so it works well for color illustration. And, the book can be read online:
