Boy who wanted more cheese2

 
 
Fairy tale by Boy who wanted more cheese by William E. Griffis
 
"Kees felt very happy, for he had no sense of being tired, and he did not know he was asleep. He thought his fairy partners, who had danced with him, were now waiting on him to bring him cheeses. With a golden knife, they sliced them off and fed him out of their own hands. How good it tasted! He thought now he could, and would, eat all the cheese he had longed for all his life. There was no mother to scold him, or daddy to shake his finger at him. How delightful!"

ChanChan
 
It was almost my first ccommissioned work for full pages of children's book
since I grduated from school.
Some girl asked me to draw her personal story to give a present to her family.
At that time, we didn't expect this book will be published soon but last week, I got email from her that this book will be published in iBooks next months.
It was really good to hear that and finally I can show my works in my blog and portfolio website.
Usually, the writer don't want to share works before it is published.
I can not wait to see my books on iBooks in next months.
