Superfrog Unleashed!

Well, what a crazy couple of weeks it's been. Rushing here, there, and everywhere, finding places to live, filling in paperwork, getting ready for a craft show, library work, a wedding, shopping for said wedding, running out of money, trying to kick ex-Boyfriend's arse into gear, updating websites, filing my Tax Return, getting a cold.....the list goes on and on! Anyway, in the midst of all the chaos, a huge box of Superfrog books arrived for me last week:

Now they are out there in the cosmoverse, hopefully travelling wide and bringing me universal acclaim! It's strange to think about all that hard work I started this time last year, and how it kept me busy for five months. It was tough going at times, seemingly never-ending, and it was bloody difficult trying to think up different ways of incorporating white areas for the text that weren't just obvious blank patches in the illustrations! I'm pretty happy with them, though. One of the rare occasions where you get the finished product and don't hate it! Obviously there are bits that stick out like a sore thumb to me, bits I would do differently now, but overall I like them a lot.

I think they look fab with lots of stuff to engage a childs interest which is so important when they learning to read and developing their reading skills.

Also it's a total plus to me that the frog is called Fergus - best name evar!
