I hope you are keeping warm and dry on this awesomely wet (Melbourne) day.
As many of you will know by now, my very first children’s picture book ‘Mikah’s Big Move’ is due for release this year (yehaah!)
I have been working with my fabulous illustrator Alexander Kulieshov (based in the Ukraine) and he is doing an amazing job bringing Mikah monkey and his world to life.
I have been nearly non-existent online, but things are happening in the background. Ear infections are settling, illustrations are being finished and I have been working through the images from a big photo shoot I did for my local community centre.
I have also booked in a venue for the books launch, now just need the printed book and a date. Plenty of ideas for that which hopefully will become a reality and make it a fabulous event.
I plan to have a pozible campaign running in the next month or so, via this campaign you will be able to pre-order copies of the book and grab some fabulous extra’s at the same time, so keep an eye out for that.
I am getting there slowly but surely and looking forward to what is coming! It is set to be amazing :)
Here are a few images of Mikah and his family as
well as some details about the book.
‘Mikah’s Big Move’ (book one in the Mikah monkey series)
A young, hearing-impaired and routine orientated monkey learns that his family will be moving enclosures.
Mikah must overcome anxiety, coupled with a bit of sulking as he learns to adjust to the upheaval. With help from his family and some experimentation, Mikah discovers that he can continue to have the same routine and that some changes are good changes. Mikah soon feels comfortable enough to explore his new surroundings and even begins to enjoy it.
Picture book for ages 3-7 years
Written by Tabitha Jean Page
Illustrated by Alexander Kulieshov
Releasing 2018 (date to be confirmed)
