After posting the front cover of my first-ever published picture-book yesterday (due out next March), and because I can't stop cooing and clucking like a proud mother hen, I asked Picture Book Pete (my lovely editor at OUP) if I was allowed to show you the back cover as well.
Bless the man - he said yes!
Of course, you might wonder why I'd want to?
You might think that surely this would be an anti-climax?
Ah, but no....
The back cover is just as adorable as the front!
I chatted a little with Pete about the book's design. He said: 'The aim was to come up with something that felt nostalgic but engaging and surprising.'
Personally, I think they've got it spot on. Thank you Pete, thank you wonderful Marion, and thank you all at OUP :)
