The award winning picture book Little Moss, Big Tree, which I illustrated in 2018, has been sold to Qingdao Publishing in China. We are excited to have the book translated and distributed in mainland China. It previously won a Gold Medal at the Independent Publishers Book Awards (IPPY), Best Illustrator Gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards, and was a SCBWI Spark Award Honor recipient, and Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Finalist among other honors.

Prytula’s painted illustrations are fantastic, rendering realistic, incredibly detailed nature scenes with swirls of color and texture. - Kirkus Review _________ The illustrations in Little Moss, Big Tree are outstanding. Light pastel watercolors fill the page and invite the reader to escape and all the trees, snail, animals, and leaves are illustrated accurately with soft hues of color. __________ You taught me what was possible and expected when working with other artists.You were so patient with me while working through an unfamiliar etiquette. It was a real kindness. - Client feedback
