You never know if something is going to be a success or a failure, so as the old saying goes, if you don’t try, you can’t succeed.
The most inexpensive book I have written is “Arnold, the Cute Little Pig with Personality”. First, all the pro’s in the book field said, “the name is too long”. So we have been calling it “Arnold” with the subtitle, the cute little pig with personality.
We didn’t do any high priced illustrations because my son, Stephen did the graphics. He got out his tablet and drew away. The pictures are colorful and imaginative and that is just what all the kids love about the book. He drew exactly what the pig was doing and kids love it.
The children get the giggles when mom and dad read them the oink words and especially the oink when Arnold is too full to move. I have so many videos of the toddlers running around and oinking!
Arnold was also my favorite book to write because our whole family loved the real Arnold. I think that is why the illustrations worked so well too because Stephen grew up with Arnold and could draw those little smiles that we thought pigs do.
Arnold is a favorite with every child who reads it.
