Crazy About Soccer!

Last year I was approached by Annick Press to work with writer Loris Lesynski, the talented children’s book author, to create a new type of picture book which takes the popular topic of Soccer and looks at it from a kid’s point of view in Loris’s inimitable style of funny verse.  Loris has created a number of children’s books, many of which are illustrated by her, so it was a real treat to work with a writer whose work is so visual and fun.  The result is Crazy About Soccer! which will be released this September, 2012.  Here are some samples…
