Just Being Audrey

13 Comments 17 January 2011

Hello everyone! I hope you are all happy and well in this new year. My apologies for falling behind on the news a bit, it’s been busy, but I have a peace offering.

Next week the sweetest children’s book is coming out, Just Being Audrey. I’m sure some of you have already heard about it, but if not, just look at how darling it is. I love the illustrations so much, don’t you? If you do, click here to go to the illustrator’s blog and see a few more pictures from the book, which she was kind enough to share from her advance copy of the book.

The book is 32 pages and illustrated quite a lot, and is ideally for the 4-8 year old age range, but of course that won’t stop any of us, will it? I think it would make a lovely little coffee table book to have laying out, and your guests could learn about Audrey in 10 minutes flat. If you do know any children, even better, as the pictures will captivate them and the text is simple enough to get Audrey’s life story across to anyone, whether they like reading or not.

I think, to make up for my spotty updates, I should give away a couple of copies of this book. It’s just so cute and I want to share the cuteness, and I do feel bad for not being around more often lately. Would you be okay with a contest to win a copy?

Edit: Just found a beautiful trailer for the book with loads more illustrations. I’m completely in love.

    Your ‘”peace offering”‘ is very much accepted, these are wonderful illustrations and as you say, the book will definitely make a fantasic conversation piece, the guess’ silence will be broken with this ice breaker for the coffee table. The illustrations alone will give the guess something to talk about; i.e. the dressed figures in the grouping at the bottom of your blog, the 8th figure is reminescent of a 1995-1998 victoria secret black zipfront jumpsuit, and those slippers/flats/slides/shoes will never be outdated. My, how fashion just goes around and around and around.

    It is a fabbboulous gift idea for fashionably mind little girls & for adult girls with little girl hearts (mentality).

    I could use your illustrations in my own personal blogs, I have duplicated and saved them. I am also requesting permission to use the illustrations.

    I would love to win this book!! A non-profit organization I volunteer for is having a “style” event and this would be a wonderful addition as a raffle prize.

    Hello. In Julia’s drawing of the 8 Audrey’s, I recognize 7 of the outfits. Two are from Sabrina. The only one I’m uncertain of is the one with Audrey with the blue scarf wrapped around her head. Can someone please remind me from which movie this is from? Thanks.
