    The illustrations are bright and colorful; very unique. She has another book based on the Jindo dogs that is available as an eBook. I hope Helen offers this book as an eBook soon.

  • What a great idea – revealing the winners one at a time. These 2 so far look great… can’t wait to see who comes up next! 😀

      Glad you like the “reveal.” It was a last minute decision. More fun that way!

  • I’m simply ecstatic! I feel so honored to have one of my Guess What books make your list. I’m also happy I get to share this recognition with my 13 wonderful young artists who submitted their illustrations for the book.

  • Thank you so much for your hard work with all of these! Lucy Elliott’s book looks like my favourite of the bunch and I can easily see why it reached #1. I hate to say it doesn’t look like a self-published book, but WOW does she set the bar high… :-)))

    Aviva, you are a sweetheart. I can’t tell you how proud I am to have made the list. I’ll read all of them as I can. I think you are doing excellent work and everything is so professionally done. I thought Mariana’s colorful book deserved it’s place on the list too.
