Emma takes shape

Swedish illustrator Malin Forsman has delivered the final black-and-white versions of the pictures for my upcoming children’s book about Emma the Crocodile; Emma & väskmännen (Emma and the Bag Men).

Here’s the cover (obviously the title will be added):

It’s absolutely wonderful to see the pictures and the text blend together into a full, multifacetted story. The details in some of the illustrations seem to lie in wait for you, to make you smile or laugh when you discover them. This is going to be great!
