The title of the book is Princess Ana and B, written by Barbara McKee for the children of Honduras. The book is written in English and Spanish. The illustrations are beautifully rendered by artist Barbara Mallonee. She captured the delight in this story with her amazing drawings.
I am so lucky to be able to call this wonderful, delightful, creative woman my friend. She is a dear!
Here are some pictures I took at the book signing in Casting, Maine.
