Here are a few new illustrations for 'The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land' by Anne Morgan. Before going on holiday I sent them up to the publisher, IP Kidz ... and on return, received their email to say they are happy with them ... so I'm celebrating with some tropical fruit wine. The large Scot depicted with bulbous knees is called Gordon. He is in the same story as that lazy boy, also seen sleeping in while the cow is left unmilked. A friend suggested I should make the cow's spots look like a map of the world, which is an excellent idea. Do send ideas if you have them - I need them. The wolf is from another story and is posing as a solar panel salesman (as seen through a spyhole in the door). Would you let him in?
