What happens when a storybook character encounters the illustrator who drew him--and talks back? In this imaginative series, four animals engage with the illustrator's hand in amusing--and sometimes infuriating!--ways. These interactive stories, featuring bold graphics that will appeal to artists and art teachers, are excellent read-aloud books for young children. Rudy the Reindeer is out strolling when he stumbles upon a pencil, and ultimately, his illustrator. Delighted, Rudy asks the artist for a comforting drawing, but the artist chooses instead to tease his young friend. The sulky reindeer perks up when the artist finally reveals a surprise: a jolly visitor, who even offers Rudy a job!
Sylviane Gangloff, an artist based in France, holds a degree in illustration from the School of Decorative Arts of Strasbourg.
