Illustrations for Big Cat Collins Collection of Caribbean Folktales written by John Agard and Grace Nichols.  Legends, myths and fairytales told in an imaginative way for young readers.  This is my second book for the wonderful Grace Nichols, the first being a poetry book "Everybody Got a Gift".  Some of the tales are quite errie and the spooky illustrations enhance these evocative tales.  "Meet Mama Water" is a Caribbean version of the "Little Mermaid" but with a twist.

One Well has just been designated as a "Common Core" core curriculum selection for the New York Board of Education and other boards across the United States.  It has already received several awards.

Aimed at 8- 12 year olds, it is beautifully written by Rochelle Strauss who tells the story of Water with loads of interesting facts. She uses the metaphor of One Well to explain water in a narative form.  It is heavily illustrated and was a huge project that was a lot of fun to do.

Here is an animated trailer for the book:
