Willow the wonderer
Woke up one day
Wondering about happiness
And where it lay...
Willow the Wonderer is an enchanting new picture book about the search for happiness.
Exquisitely illustrated with rhyming, counting and wisdom, it's a children's book in a class of it's own.
behind the words and pictures
Reeta grew up surrounded by stories; tales from the olden days her grannies used to tell, scary stories that her siblings would share, legends about ancient yogis her dad read aloud, Bollywood films her mum rented and stories from all the glorious books she read.
Stories became her doorway into a world of imagination that enthralled, enticed and enchanted in equal measure. They inspired her to travel, climb mountains, do yoga, meditate and seek out the magic in life.
Reeta’s career has been in business strategy but writing was always something she was going to do. In this first book, she brings together her love of rhyme and the natural world with life's little lessons she has learnt along the way.
Darren started drawing before he started walking, or so the story goes. He was the quiet one in the family who spent all his time drawing at the kitchen table; his uncle was surprised to find out that he even had legs!
It was no surprise however that he pursued studies in design and a career as an illustrator, art director and contemporary artist. A classically trained painter with expertise in digital media, Darren seamlessly combines the two disciplines in his craft.
Darren has for many years gazed into clouds, fire and other natural landscapes, searching for animals and objects to emerge from the abstract shapes. He has drawn upon these to illustrate this book, immersing all creatures great and small into the landscape.
