I Made A Book with My Sister

I made a book with my sister
Last year, my sister was doing a course and at the end of the semester, she had to write a short story for kids and also do some kind of illustration for it.

It just happened that I called her one day while she was working on this assignment and she asked me if I would help her with some ideas for the illustrations. Of course I would!

Well, as you can probably guess, one thing led to another and within a couple of days I’d made illustrations for all the ‘poems’ in the story. It’s what a good sister does, right? And it was fun to do something completely different.

I sent my sister the five illustrations for her course and that was it.

But then I had an idea! Last year my parents were going to California to spend Christmas with my sister and her family. And I thought “ooh, wouldn’t it be cool to have the illustrations printed as a book for my sister and my parents can pick it up?”

Of course, the story only had five illustrations, so I had to change them to each fit across a spread and make a front and back cover as well. It was a fun challenge!

This is the first illustration I made. When I read the poem, I could just see the tent and the fire and the stars very clearly in my imagination.

      Thank you! It was so much fun to make. And to surprise my sister with the printed version – even if I wasn't there in person. :-D
