Animal Poem Illustrated with the Young in Mind

For all who love the natural world I am very excited to tell you about a lovely art/poetry collaboration.

Marnie Jones – an American poet and author – has asked me to paint for her a series of artful animals that would illustrate her magical poem “In the Morning”.

The poem depicts the natural stirrings of several animals as they awaken to their world. It is delightfully written and would be lovely for parents to read to young children.

Marnie has set up a website for the book which features our biographies and work and our charity of choice.

We hope to have the book published in late 2010!

The WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) does work to stop animal cruelty all over the world and 10% of salesof “In the Morning” will be going to them. There’s a donate button on the site already which is so cool!

For a peek at the site as it grows please go to FairyRabbit – ENJOY!
