When my boys were young they wanted original bedtime stories, not those fairy tales that everyone else got. So my wife and I spent a lot of time coming up with silly stories to tell them. They were right into dinosaurs at the time so I came up with “Are dinosaurs ticklish”. Over time I developed it to the point where we sent a draft of the story and accompanying illustrations to a few publishers who all totally ignored it. But it was fun and gave me a chance to experiment with some illustration styles of which the following are examples.
I’m open to any publisher wanting to have a look at a draft of the story and the illustrations if they want to. I think I can still find the illustrations.
