Such a Christmas gift!
Recognition to one’s job is always a big balm to the soul: it sparkles joy, confidence and ignite you with wanting to do better and better.

 Much of the information we presume to know about dinosaurs can be chalked up to theoretical speculation.  Of course, there are many factors about which we can be fairly certain; but there are so many other considerations which we may likely never know definitively.  For instance… what if dinosaurs were pink?

Author Jarrett Whitlow’s What if Dinosaurs Were Pink? addresses this question along with a plethora of other absurdly preposterous ponderings.  Written in rhyme and overflowing with witty conjecture, this children’s picture book is sure to incite lots of giggles and belly-laughs.  Replete with page after page of whimsical illustrations by Daniela Dogliani, this book is sure to be a big hit with children and their adult counterparts.  Recommended for home and school libraries, What if Dinosaurs Were Pink? has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

I can’t tell how happy I am for this award and the many amazing reviews the book is getting and wanted to share a little joy!

Hard Cover

written by Jarrett Whitlow and published by Warren Publishing is a beautiful quirky story stimulating kids imagination and inclusiveness!

I enjoyed working on the illustrations, depicting dinosaurs living real lives, imagine their colours and interactions and became so fond of my PinkDinos that I really much hope you’ll love and enjoy this book too.

In the author’s words:

What if Dinosaurs Were Pink? is the first in a series of engaging, rhyming stories that encourage young readers to stretch their imaginations beyond what we think we know about science, while respecting our great scientists who work hard to uncover more and more facts each day.  (…)

Whitlow was inspired by his daughter, Ella. “One day at the Orlando Science Center, my daughter and I were in the dinosaur section. Since she was old enough to express interest in colors, pink has always been her favorite, and now with two younger brothers, she often finds herself playing with dinosaurs. Looking around at all of the bones, I said to her, ‘What if dinosaurs were pink?’ She giggled and we both thought that would be a fun book.  Later that evening, the story was complete.”


“This book is both fun and educational. Any story that can get kids giggling while they learn is a winner,” added Mindy Kuhn, President of Warren Publishing. “This is one that parents will love too.”

It’s that time of the year!

Bologna Children’s Book Fair is just round the corner, it will be 10years since I visited for the first time and made my final decision to quit my AD in-house work to embrace freelancing.

I’ve been through up and downs of creative life but each and every day I’m so happy and grateful to work for kids literature and put my hand on service in the making of amazing, funny, quirky, touching, adventurous, educative stories.

Will be delighted to catch-up with fellow friends and clients, to absorb books magic, discover beauties and stock inspiration for the rest of the year.

Will keep an Instagram again his year, follow me or #BCBF2018 #BCBF
