The characters from my new picture book, EWE AND AYE, are on a celebridot!

It came about because teacher Terry Shay asked me if I'd be willing to do a celebridot (dots are created by authors, illustrators, and celebrities to celebrate International Dot Day, inspired by Peter H. Reynolds' picture book "The Dot"). So happy to have been asked, and it was fun to create the dot!

For my dot, I re-imagined the back cover of my book. Instead of drawing a new adventure, the characters are drawing the story of the adventure they had in the book.

Here's the dot:

Has anyone else done a celebridot? If so, please share the link!

Wonderful! I love how the bold characters stand out against the crayon/pastel background.

Thank you, AnnH, Kell, and Marica! I feel honored to have been asked.

Marcia, you guessed right, it's crayon. :)
