Suzy Goose And The Christmas Star

The book was published some time ago. As a Christmas book it has a very short life time. It appears in bookshops at this time of the year and it’s taken down from the shelves as soon as Christmas is over. 
ObalWhenever I am asked to sign a copy of “Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star” I know that it is time to start thinking about Christmas presents. CHRISTMAS IS COMING SOON!

13Looking at the pictures from the book I remember the time when I was working on the book. The idea to write “Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star” came to me one Christmas as I was walking over the Somerset Levels.

I always carry a new idea for a book in my head for while before I start sketching it. It takes some time to make it ready to be presented to my publisher and even longer to persuade them that the book is a masterpiece, definitely worth being published.


So when I finely started to work on the pictures, it was summer. It’s a bit strange to paint snow when it is hot outside.1. A Titel pageBut I love painting snow.

In fact I love snow full stop. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some this Christmas?SG_CHRISTMAS-03

Happy Advent to Everyone!
