…along with a super sweet note from my editor, Andrea Welch, at Beach Lane Books
Every book begins somewhere and mine began visibly with the 1st dummy.
It will change enormously, but page 2-3 started out looking like this on my 1st thumbnail storyboard.
But the text seemed squashed so I shifted the bears around,
But now, to make the story fit, I had to leave space on page 2 for the copyright and dedication.
So the final composition sketch looked like this.
And the finished print like this!
