Illustrations for second book Little Yellow Ball are going as planned, and Tom is doing a great job, but you can check for yourself. The plan is still the same, finishing illustrations on all three books and Create space, Amazon here we come in paperback and e-book editions.
Little Yellow Ball is a story about boy Noel and his pet friend Oscar and their game with the ball.
“Noel threw the ball full of hope, wishing that they would play. Oscar ran after the ball and grabbed it as it bounced off the ground, with his ears flying in all directions due to speed and fast changes of direction. He was back at Noel’s feet in no time, dropping the ball, barking loudly and waving his pointy tail.
They played for a long long time, forgot about lunch and came home too late.”
What you play with may mather, but not as much as the company your playing with.

Summer heat is relentless, the color of the sea is magical, and pine trees overlooking the beach are creating that famous mediteranian smell. The setting is perfect, sea is warm and Oscar the Beagle is with his family on vacation. Sunrise over blue waters are amazing, but Oscar’s nose doesn’t catch romantic. What he is good at, is finding leftovers on beach.
