Monster

I love this new picture book, it's written by Andrew Daddo, illustrated by the wonderful Bruce Whatley and published by Harper Collins. The illustrations are beautiful and the story has a twist at the end which made me laugh out loud! A new source of inspiration for me as I'm currently in the process of writing and illustrating my own picture book.
More posts about that in the future.
