It's Book Week in these parts and so I thought I'd do a little tribute to Lauren Child, who would be well known to anyone who has kiddes of pre or primary school age.

We did a very basic outfit for Book Parade based on That Pesky Rat (a huge favourite of Cee Cee's). Nothing fancy, just some faux fur ears and a tail teamed with some tatty shorts and a jumper.
Fortunately Pesky Rat doesn't need impressive clothes: he just wants to be loved and to be someone's pet.
Lauren's aesthetic in this and other books is a total delight to anyone of a crafty persuasion. She uses gorgeous origami paper, wallpaper and fabric motifs to create her collage-style illustrations, all of which are totally awesome.
A doubly good reason to love Liberty! Long live Lauren.... (and happy Book Week!)
