Egmont's catalogue cover by Susie!

We could finally see the cover of the new Egmont catalogue in Bologna!! so pretty! Susanna Moores illustrated it!  

"The illustration features a bunny family who have invited a squirrel, hedgehog and two voles along for their family read in the hazy long summer grass. On the back the characters are snuggled up in thier burrow surrounded by winter snow. This is the second cover I have illustrated for Egmonts catalogue series. "
