A dream come true for an illustrator of children's books

As many of you may know, I have been an illustrator of kid's books since 1999 but recently I was able to fulfill a dream of mine(well, actually, I never even dreamed of this one).

I was given the honor and privilege to illustrate the words of the late and amazing Margaret Wise Brown, the author of Goodnight Moon. Talk about a daunting task!! Whew! But after I got out of my own head and after lots of prayer, I just let go and let God guide my hand.

Without further adieu...I present On Christmas Day by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by me!
