Booklaunch for children’s book about Welsh valley miners

Another children’s book launch – today was for ‘The Mouse and the Coal Mine’ by PETRA Publishing which I did the illustrations for earlier this year. Beautiful atmospheric and bittersweet Story by writer/poet/actor/performer Mike Church , written from conversations with miners and families of miners in Aberbargoed – my favourite children’s book to work on so far. The optimism in the story is there but I think it’s optional and for that reason I liked it a lot when I read it and worked on the illustrations with this thought in mind.

Below are photos of a few of the pages. Contact Petra Publishing to purchase.
