I had a full color children’s book project from Instructional Fair this month. This was one of two ‘full color’ titles that I worked on for this client in ’99 (the other being ‘Imagine That’ finished later in the year). This one was entitled ‘Mother Goose News’ and the first part of the book (the lead story) was about Goldilocks and the Three Bears (all done as two page spreads), and the second half was taken up with various short rhymes about other nursery characters (Red Riding Hood, Three Pigs, etc), and each occupied a single page. The whole book was tied together by a ‘newscast theme’ and the beginning and end of the book featured the ‘mother goose narrator and her “film crew”.
In the past, I’ve only shared a few sample illustrations from the book, but I am going back and sharing each book in its entirety for the first time since publication (updating this in 2018).
