I came up with the story of Herman years ago, before I even had kids. Last summer, I contacted Haley to see if she would be interested in illustrating it. She said yes, and the rest is history. I should let you know that Haley also wrote the last several pages of the book, too.A brief synopsis:
Destined to become a classic, like Good Night Moon, Madeline, or anything else by Shakespeare, this is the story of Herman, an unlikely hero who overcomes obstacles to build his own spaceship to travel to outerspace. The plot focuses on hard work, perseverance, and friendship. Newcomer graphic artist, Haley Wolfe, impresses with her outstanding retro-fun illustrations with fabulous details. Any child, ages 3-10, will love this book.
