Gooooorgeous. Love the design, love the pink! The flow of the character across back and front. Super stuff all round. Pat yourself on the back and break open a bar of the good choccie!!!

cassia said...

thanks, april! I'm desperately trying to ignore the chocolate- but since you've given me permission...! :0)

ickleson said...

Looks great! Lots of fun, definitley worth rewarding yourself over. :)

Laurie said...

Great cover - I am exhausted from tring to keep up with Lively Elizabeth. Phew!

cassia said...

thanks very much!

Ickleson- I shall definitely bow to peer pressure!

Sorry, Laurie- I like to keep you in the picture! :0)

I think this cover is excellent! Love the colors and the adorable pattern!
I think they should make a little doll of her. :)

cassia said...

haha! My art director says Elizabeth looks like me with different coloured hair- thus a doll might be a tad spooky! Am definitely up for the fantasy world of merchandising royalties though! :0)

Top bookjacket Cass, chocs all round, Huzzah! Was overrun by an elite unit of nieces yesterday which, bar the goggles, bore an uncanny resemblance to the lively one. So top marks for observation/characterisation/or somefink.

Lynne Chapman said...

Fantastic! I love the character and the way she jumps and tumbles her way right across the back and front. I too can see the resemblance...

Angelico said...

I like it. :)

cassia said...

thanks all!

Alex- sounds terrifying. Am imagining the scene in StarWars where they come across the Ewok village... with maybe less hair, but just as much cuteness involved.

Thanks Angelico. Your work is lovely too.

Hope you're feeling better, Lynne? Hope your sketch books aren't getting too snotty!

Thanks very much, Buskitten! It seems like ages now until it comes out, but thanks so much for the best wishes.

Mr McCullen, I owe you an all-singing, all-dancing email- shall get onto to it towards the latter part of the week- promise!
