Fun and fast-paced for ages 6-8

Once again I worked with my Bosnian illustrator, Damir Kundalic, who pulled out all the stops to come up with the fun illustrations of Brian, the bossy boa constrictor who’s been put in charge of the escape, as well as Gordon and all the other animals in the story.  Here are a couple of taster illustrations 🙂
