Today!!! today is the launching of the new book:
"Las aventures de Sarah et du Petit Prince Magique au Taj Mahal"
Which I illustrated last Summer
for the new editorial project "Editions des Songes"
A lovely story the author Olivier Soussy
used to tell to his daughters
when they were little before going to sleep.
Now his daughters have grown up
and it's very touching for me
to have illustrated such a personal part
of their childhood!
Plus this book is very special
as you will be able to personalize the main character
and her name so she looks like your daughter
and make it her own bed time story!
I'm very excited!!!! Come to discover this book with us later
today at Juliette & Chocolat St Laurent at 5.30pm :D
