Natty The Orphan Mouse – Childrens Book Illustration
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Joanna Scott | Share link:


After working on the redesign of celebrity bear Paddington last year, as part of a two woman dream team, I was asked to work on a heartfelt children’s book about adoption. What has this got to do with Paddington I hear you ask? Well it contains a couple of lovely kind bears, not unlike our dear Paddington, thats what.

In short, without giving the whole story away, a couple of cubless bears decide to adopt a delightful little white mouse. This will be an amazing and beautiful book when it is out later this year and one for your child’s bookshelf. I will keep you posted on the publishing date!

Joanna was a dream to work with as an illustrator. As a publisher I am always looking for people who can take initiative and still provide me with exactly what I want, Joanna was amazing and seemed to read my mind, knowing what would work even if I didn't. Her work was excellent but it was her attitude to the work that would make me happy to work with her again.
