The Animal Store Alphabet Book

Words by Susan Bearman

Susan and I self-published this ABC book featuring animals you can find in a pet store. For the illustrations, I painted 30-inch paintings in acrylics which are hanging in the Hope Institute in Chicago.
We also made a poster and a coloring book. All are available at, /, and, we hope, lot of other places too.
