“When the Brooklyn Public Library asked for designs of classic children’s book characters it was a dream project come true. What children’s book illustrator wouldn’t love to interpret classic characters?! Red Riding Hood was one of my favorite stories as a preschooler and every kid could imagine what we would do in Red Riding Hood’s shoes. Surely, we would recognize the Wolf immediately! It was fun to create these characters in my world and I hope you like them, too."
