Breadcrumbs


Breadcrumbs is a middle grade novel by Anne Ursu, published by HarperCollins and Walden Pond Press, and illustrated by Yours Truly. The writing in this book is just beautiful, and I know 10 year old me would have absolutely loved it. Really, the illustrations for this one were a complete pleasure to work on, and I was lucky to work with Jordan Brown and Carla Weise at Harper who just pushed me to up the emotional ante on every piece. This book comes out in September.



Breadcrumbs is already getting some buzz round the internets, so here's just a few posts if you're inclined to see more illustrations and hear more about the story-

I read and reviewed the galley of BREADCRUMBS, and yes, the writing is beautiful. I was captivated by your artwork and how it furthered the story and can't wait until all the art comes out in September's release of the novel.

I really love the picture with the bird. It's mysterious and haunting. A very elegant and beautiful work.
