Cover reveal for PRETTY MINNIE IN PARIS


The cover has been revealed for the picture book I illustrated, PRETTY MINNIE IN PARIS, written by Danielle Steel. It'll be published by Doubleday Books for Young Readers in Oct, 2014. 

Ooh la la!

This was such a fun book to illustrate, especially since my husband and I visited Danielle Steel and her little dog, Minnie, at their apartment in Paris and spent a week in Paris taking photos for research. Oh, how I love my job!

















Here's the synopsis of the book:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel comes a charming picture book about Minnie, a tiny teacup Chihuahua with big style! Inspired by the adorable adventures of bestselling author Danielle Steel’s own teacup Chihuahua, Pretty Minnie in Paris is the stylish, ooh la la tale of a fashionable Parisian pup out on the town. Lost backstage during a noisy, crowded fashion show, tiny Minnie is separated from her owner, the girl she loves best. Quel désastre! But chaos turns to couture when Minnie unexpectedly finds herself the star of the runway. With a dreamy Paris backdrop and an atelier full of adorable outfits, Pretty Minnie in Paris is sure to be in vogue as the season’s must-have tale for little girls—and Danielle Steel fans of all ages—who love clothing, glamour, glitter, and all things à la mode.
