Introducing Illustrator Chris Cartwright

Zach Final Picture1-Rev1

I’m delighted to introduce another of the four illustrators currently working on my book projects. Her name Chris Cartwright. The above image is for Zach and the Toad Who Rode the Bull which is scheduled for release on October 15. Below is an excerpt from the book it is depicting.

Zach’s friends had frogs to jump and race.

They held contests all over the place

to see how far they’d jump and go.

They really put on quite a show.


Zach wanted a frog so he could play

with the other boys and their frogs all day.

With Love,
