Recenty I got samples of my second illustrated book, "A smart girl's guide to manners", and I couldn't be happier. I spent most of last summer inside my studio working on this book, and it's incredibly rewarding to have it finally on print, in my hands. It's a reedition of one of American Girl Publishing's best sellers, 128 pages full of useful advice for girls 8+, from table manners, to boys, parties or phone etiquette. And of course, lots of illustrations! I will be showing them in the next few posts, but here's a little gossip-y piece from the book as an advance.
