I've spent most of my free time over the last six or seven weeks working on a children's book I wrote and illustrated 10 years ago. The illustrations where a little bit dodgy back then as I was starting out as an illustrator. So ten years later and i'm reworking the whole lot in the hope of a publication deal.
So that's why i'm ready for the fury! As any critisims here are probarbly going to be less harsh than the critisism's of an editor or a publisher.
So throw all you have at me! I can take it! And more importantly.... I need it! This project has got to be right.
Thanks for taking a look and giving some constructive feedback.

This made me wonder if the cover of this book will also be colorful enough to catch the eye : Boys and girls will go for a colorful book too...most likely if they don't know how to read yet... You're a great illustrator there's no question there!
I impressed me that you're using rhymes...when I was reading through the posts I thought that your story was written in prose and it was a very nice surprise to find out it was not! You have a great talent and you reminded me of Dr. Seuz!
Keep going! Don't worry...you should read Jack Canfield's Principles of Success book. He tells you all of the hardships that he went through when he first tried to publish Chicken Soup for the Soul...now he's very famous, so just keep trying!
Remember this Japanese Proverb: If you fall down 7 times get up 8.
Lots of luck!
