new picture book cover!

This one isn’t coming out til March 1st, but thought I’d give you a peek anyway! It features a princess, a space ship, chocolate, cakes and ALIENS!!! …Ha ha, you’ll never guess which things I had the most fun drawing.

Here’s what Scholastic UK are saying about it on Amazon:
When King Cupcake is kidnapped by hungry aliens, it’s up to his feisty daughter, Princess Spaghetti, to save him from becoming their dinner. She blasts off into space to show those naughty aliens who’s boss – and introduces them to a delicious alternative to people: chocolate! This hilarious romp will delight chocolate lovers everywhere!

Gillian Rogerson’s text IS funny, I had such a giggle when they showed it to me. And I probably gained ten pounds doing ‘research’ drawing the cakes, this book should come with a health warning.
