Bringing special stories to life!

Special things come in various sizes and delightful ones, let me tell you! Just like these super adorable handmade dolls created by my wonderful and talented friend, Stephanie Cowburn, a felt design maker of all things magical and whimsical. When you have time, you must take a peek at her page to see all of the other wonderful stuffies Stephanie designs herself.  Beware, they'll touch your heart in ways you never could imagine.

Not long ago, I had inquired with her about the possibility of making some dolls based off of the illustrations from one of the recent books I illustrated (The Adventures of Chopper & T) and a set for my upcoming book (Ladybug! Ladybug!), launching soon. Both myself and the authors are thrilled with the results! What do you think?
