I am fond of saying that the goslings in the Gossie & Friends series of books have a life of their own, with or without me.
At the end of February my Dutch publisher, Gottmer, participated in a surprising event called the “Nine Months Fair”. This event is geared to mothers-to-be and new mothers. It attracts between 45,000 and 50,000 visitors!
This year Gottmer went all out with their display of Gossie & Friends/Gonnie & vriendjes! AND…the very talented Ageeth da Haan performed songs from the official CD for the books.
Here are some photos to show you what a fantastic job Gottmer did presenting the goslings to the visitors to this incredible event!
My editor at Gottmer sent me the entire display unit for Ageeth’s fabulous CD with a book of lyrics to the songs! AND…my editor is sending me a tote bag or two! Thank you, Marieke!
Meanwhile…here is the rough, rough colour study layout for Bedtime for Gossie & Friends:
