I'm very excited to announce that 'Kingdom of Rooms' written by M. J. Gibbs and Jenny Catalano (and illustrated by myself) has just been published, and is availabe to purchase via the author's website.
With the theme of 'royal palaces' and 'collecting', this fun-to-read-aloud book is full of poems that children will enjoy.
I loved spending time researching and drawing the kinds of things that I think would be in a palace full of interesting bits and pieces - coats of armour, statues, Victorian toys, books and rocking horses... and soooo many peacock feathers!
And luckily for me, I had my boys to help me with ideas when I got stuck like, "The boy on the cover should be roller skating and wearing a knight's helmet". Brilliant!
I created the illustrations using watercolour, pen and ink on paper and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have!
