On first glance, I’m thrilled. It’s adorable! I’ve always been a fan of Shannon’s illustrations, so to have them combined with my puzzles is fantastic. Adele at Taku reports the sample was very well-received at the gift shows (trade shows where Alaska gift shops buy products), so she’s eager to get the book edited and printed. So am I, to say the least.
I have wanted to do Alaska natural history puzzle books like this for more than ten years. It’s so exciting to see it happen at long last. Best of all, Shannon liked the sample, too, and would like to do more. Yippee! When I get this one proofed, I’ll get to work on the next one. Can you guess the subject of the next one?
