Here is another book that I illustrated this year for McGraw-Hill. It's called Why the Sea is Salty, and is based off of a Filipino folktale. This story is part of the KinderBound series, which is a 4-week educational program designed to transition preschoolers to kindergarten.
I had a lot of fun sneaking the little crab into lots of the pictures. He became a mascot, and was used in the workbook that accompanies the story as well. Have a look at a few of the spreads below.
