Guarantee a happily ever after, read The Purple Pussycat!

Siblings reading 
Cutie sisters Jade and Josie from Missouri sent me this darling photo of them enjoying my book The Purple Pussycat. Nice to see sibling reading replacing sibling rivalry!  Thanks for the photo ladies, it gave my heart a squeeze!

This March I will be soloing an illustration show at Lansing Art Gallerygenerously sponsored by a grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. In addition to drawings, I will be transforming a hidden corner of the gallery into something special. Here's a taste of the art that will surround the art.

Once upon a time...

Early readers enjoying "The Purple Pussycat" illustrated by me.
When people send me fan-pix of littles enjoying my artwork (and books), it makes my heart explode all over the place.

I'm feeling the love this week.  :)

The Purple Pussycat has ARRIVED

The Purple Pussycat illustrated by ME!
Instead of bills and junk, my mail was pretty epic today...This afternoon I received my first copies of "The Purple Pussycat" by Margaret Hillert aka the vintage beginner reader that I illustrated for Norwood House Press!

The print quality of the hardcover (I haven't gotten my hands on a softcover yet) is gorgeous!  Pick up your own copy of this great little beginner book for the newbie (or cat lover) in your life!
