I was honoured to be asked by Hardie Grant to write this picture book. And I can’t wait to see how THE EVERYDAY TUTU takes form through illustration.
I really love this story and its pace, and the determination of its protagonist. Knowing that it provides possibilities for an aspiring picture book illustrator sits so perfectly with me!
