Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holidays, with much love!!

 I ran out of time to do a christmas card this year, but I drew these cards to give to my family.

But I feel that way this year because I have to wait for another year (winter 2012) to give my latest present.
But below is a very small sneak preview from the inside flap of the cover for...

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Christmas Card

I was so surprised and thrilled to see that my publisher has animated an image from The Quiet Book for their christmas card!
Click on the image to see it snow!

Old Danish Christmas Card

I received this jolly fellow from Denmark when I was little.
It makes me smile now as I am sure it made me smile then.
Santa's beard is literally as soft as a bird's feather.

Snowy Owl

More snow arrived just in time for me to put up my little christmas tree.

Each year I get one new ornament, and this year it is a lovely snowy owl.

It reminds my of a print by John James Audubon, one of my favorite artists and a big influence. 
I would love to see one of these big books in person one day!
