Behind the scenes: illustrating Tashi and the Wicked Magician
To celebrate Children’s Book Week, we thought we’d take you behind the scenes of one of our favourite children’s titles, as Kristy gives you a sneak peek at the forthcoming Tashi title!
It’s probably not a big secret that everyone in our kids department adores Tashi. He has been such a huge part of our publishing history and he’s super cute! Plus, not to brag, but we’ve sold over a million copies, PLUS Angelina Jolie said in an interview that she reads them to her children, PLUS a tv show is coming soon – ok fine I’m bragging, but do you blame me?
We were more than a little excited when we received these work-in-progress illustrations from the forthcoming Tashi and the Wicked Magician – they are just so ridiculously gorgeous! I personally am utterly in love with the pic of Tashi and the dragon looking in the mirror, but I’m not picky, I’ll happily have any of them sitting on my wall!
I can’t wait until November to see the final product in all its glory. We’re packaging it in a beautiful hardback edition, with four brand new stories and these gorgeous illustrations – I don’t think I’m biased when I say everyone is going to love it!
