PRINCE RIBBIT Project and The Big Friendly Read

Alex's characterful cover for the Captain's Close edition of Prince Ribbit
with Poly Bernatene's cover for the actual book.

Hi Captain's Close!

I hope you enjoyed illustrating Prince Ribbit last week. I certainly enjoyed looking through all of your wonderful artwork.

The covers designs for the six class editions.

I could see that a lot of thought had gone into character drawings and spread designs and there was some clever use of typesetting from some of the older classes.

The Robins Class edition

I had a hard time choosing just 17 pieces for the school edition …

Me with the 17 illustrators of the school edition

… and illustrator Poly Bernatene had an even harder time picking just one favourite spread.
Congratulations to Scarlett from Robins Class for being Poly’s favourite illustrator!

Poly chose this spread by Scarlett as his favourite
