When I first decided to write a children’s book, I was fortunate to be introduced to Teri Rider early in the planning process. After reviewing Teri’s illustrations and talking with her about the project, I knew she was the purr-fect choice for the project. Her animal illustrations are filled with depth and character and she has a magical gift for capturing animals’ expressions and feelings on the page.

Teri is a truly gifted illustrator and book designer. She not only went the extra mile to ensure that each and every illustration were exactly the way I wanted, but she was doggone fun to work with as well! Any author or publisher would be lucky to have Teri working on their team.
