Bun Not So Small For T S Spookytooth

Eternal man of mystery, TS Spookytooth, is currently wowing children with his first picture book for Harper Collins. Entitled: "The Small Bun", the book is one in a series of books that aim to introduce children to reading via the method of phonics. With such a young audience in mind, the brief was very simple: to provide illustrations that tie-in seamlessly with the text, and not distract from it in any way. Getting this balance between words and image was something of a challenge for Mr Spookytooth and his runaway imagination, even more so since it was his first picture book for children. But as you'll see, his colourful and delightfully humorous illustration style lends itself effortlessly to the project, resulting in one genuinely pleasing publication.
