Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book       

Daisy is a loving big sister to her little brother Miles and wants to contribute to his happiness.  Miles responds with smiles when Dad plays and tickles him and when Mom interacts with him in any way.  He shows his adoration to his parents but not to Daisy. When she offers him toys and attention he cries. She sings to him, dances, and turns cartwheels for him but still Miles does not smile.  Daisy so wants him to smile and to love spending time with her.  What can she possibly do to make that happen? 

The illustrations are wonderful enriching the text with emotion and action.  Kids who have a new addition to their family will enjoy the book and it would be a great shower gift to give.  I highly recommend the book.

About the Illustrator

After an exciting career in logistics and supply chain management I decided to swap my mouse for a pencil. One of the main reasons for this decision are my two kids: Luise and Oskar.

I am still at the beginning of my career, but it’s for them that I want to prove that you can live a successful life self-employed and with a work I am truly passionate about.
