First rays of sunlight

 

The shades are off, and I’m thrilled to be able to show you the cover of My Sunbeam Baby! It'll be out, about and in the shops on 22nd October.

This is a book for one-on-one sharing with little ones, so in my cover illustration I made sure the mum and baby were completely focussed on one another. By placing them up on the top of a hill, silhouetted against the sky and encircled by the sun, I could draw them alone together away from the world and its distractions. I tried to pour as much sunshine and love as I could into the image (even the dandelions are like little suns).

There are two hundred and ninety-nine more babies inside the book — I can’t wait to show you!
