I haven't even remotely recovered from Hugging Hour being out, and BAM, out comes Bella and Bean, written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich. As soon as I was sent the manuscript, I knew I wanted to illustrate this book. I did the illustrations partly in pencil partly digital. We are getting great reviews! Read A Year of Reading: BELLA AND BEAN by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Also read Planet Esme. This is fun! (Wait until you catch me after a bad review).
