I asked my designer at Little Tiger, Helen Holmes to say a few words too as she is also super talented and a joy to work with.
Here is what Helen said about her love of working on children's books;
Like Hippo, I love wearing hats! Throughout the week I can be seen wearing a collection of hats to suit the variety of roles a book designer may play, such as: biscuit baker, technical advisor, motivator, juggler, counsellor, talent scout and the list goes on! The trick is not to wear too many at once, as it's very confusing and makes you're neck ache! And then, of course, there's the party hat – there's nothing better than a spot of fancy dress to relieve that deadline stress, yee-haw!!
Helen and I are now working on our third book together which is a lovely collection of Nursery Rhymes which will be out in 2013.
