These are the many "sample" faces of Libby, a Lobivia Jajoiana cactus plant, and main character from our most recently accepted picture storybook! Click on any of the images to get a better look.
My husband, Kevin Risk and I co-wrote Libby the Lobivia Jajoiana a number of years ago and have been revising it on and off ever since. Last year Gordon Bagshaw (author and illustrator of the Frodo the Sheltie comic strip series, and the illustrator for Sleepy Time for Mammals) came on board as our fabulous illustrator, and this year, Guardian Angel Publishing accepted Libby for publication (at a date to be announced)!
Summary: Libby is a cactus plant with self-esteem issues. After Violet moves in next to her on the windowsill, Libby learns that perceived flaws, which make her feel different and weird, can be her best characteristic.
