While we are getting things up and running I thought I would share some of the events of the last year. It has been a busy year for all within the business. But, firstly I should introduce everyone properly... The Little Blue Zebra family consists of myself, Lucy, my husband Adam, my father John (the fab illustrator) and my mother Catherine and not forgetting my sister Joanna who will be joining the business soon. My father has been illustrating children's books for over 30 years and my sister and I loved growing up surrounded by his amazing pictures. This year I had my first child, a lovely little boy, Oliver. I had no problem decorating his nursery as I was able to climb into my parents loft to get some of my father's illustrations to hang on the wall. But I thought it was such a shame that others couldn't do the same... (although not very practical- everyone climbing into my parents loft!)
Oliver loves looking at the wide mouth frog that hangs in his room and although children have been enjoying my father's books for years, he has never produced work to be hung and enjoyed everyday. This is how Little Blue Zebra was born.
