A preview for my illustrated storybook, Princesse Pivoine
(Princess Peony/Botan Hime) which was released in March, published by nobi nobi! Summary
(translation):Long ago in Feudal Japan, lovely Princess Aya prepares for an arranged wedding desired by her father. One evening, as she strolls through the beds of peonies--her favorite flowers--she is saved from a certain fall by a finest of samurai. But as if by magic, he vanishes as quickly as he appeared. Who could be this mysterious young man? Through the story's spirituality and commitment to nature, Princess Peony is told in the purest tradition of Japanese folktales.
I worked on this book for roughly a year--it wasn't easy, but I learned so much throughout the process, so many thanks to Pierre-Alain and Olivier for being there every step of the way to make sure this book was the best it could be!
