The Balloon Cloud

I'm pleased to say that I've just finished off a new picture book project The Balloon Cloud. I found this to be a really tricky job to work on as it deals with the difficult topic of bereavement and the questions raised by it for little kids such as "where do people go when they die?" The main character named Henry (pictured below) looses his balloon on a windy day, and from that point forward the story of The Balloon Cloud is told. While this is a tender topic, I feel that I've treated it really well through bright and uplifting illustrations that celebrate life and put a positive spin on a dark subject.

The Balloon Cloud will be released in the next few months.
