The book is based on a personal childhood experience. I used to visit grandparents in a village each summer, just like the main characters in this book.
This summer picture book includes: a lot of sunshine, various bugs, smell of dry wheat straw, wild flowers, taste of ripe cherry.
Welcome to this summer world!
And here is a main character Ella - a 7 year old readhead and a big city girl who is up for a long list of adventures in a village this summer.
Character design process:
The below grid follows the creation process of one of the illustrations in the book.
