The Impatient Little Tadpole – Children’s Book
Posted 5 months ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link:

I recently completed a picture book in collaboration with Marie Gallagher, entitled The Impatient Little Tadpole. Below is a little front cover sneak peak, with more internal images of spreads to follow shortly. The story follows a tadpole who is very keen to grow up and finds it very hard to slow down.

Illustrations created using Adobe Photoshop and Fresco.

Due for publication Autumn 2022.
