This is so exciting ! :-)
But I think "sad" (not really the word) your names are written so small...

Annette Gulati said...

Gorgeous cover, Katia! I love the snowman 'cloud.' Congratulations!

Katia said...

Thanks ! I also love the snowman cloud, Annette. And Jo Ann, I agree with you, regarding the names. I think they have been working on that, though, so this may not be the definite cover, as far as the names and the title are concerned. But whatever changes they bring will be minimal, so I thought I'd post the picture anyway :)

That's a wonderful cover, Katia. So warm and kid-friendly. And the snowman cloud -- awesome!
I can't, can't, can't wait to see your book.

Katia said...

Thank you, Sue. Not that I have much to do with it :)

Dear Katia,

Great the cover of your book. Fantastic the dream clouds.
Wish you all the luck.
You think we will be able to buy your book in Holland too?
Lots of love.
Mieke, Tarik and Sarah

Katia, this is beautiful! I love the use of colors here and -- as everyone else has said -- the snow man in the clouds is a brilliant touch! I think your illustrators style is perfectly suited to the book. Are you pinching yourself? What an accomplishment! Congratulations!

Congratulations Katia. The title and the bylines look like temporary fonts. You might check on thet.

It's amazing, Katia!!!!
I can feel his curiosity just by looking at him. Have to agree that the clouds are excellent. Can't wait to get my hands on the real thing. We can set up a method to get them signed by you, right?
Congrats . . . so proud of you!!

Jo Ann v. said...

I'm with Laurel on the signing part :-)

Un peu de français dans tous ces commentaires :-)
C'est magnifique, très impressionnant de voir ton nom sur cette couverture (même si c'est vrai que c'est un peu trop en petit !). J'espère que c'est le début d'une longue série. C'est aussi et surtout la récompense d'avoir crue en toi, d'avoir oser et d'avoir bcp travailler pour y arriver. Que ton rêve continue de devenir réalité !

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love it!!

Yea!!

José said...

sympa... Bon reste à lire maintenant ;-))
C'est marrant, la première chose que j'ai vue (bien qu'écrit en petit) c'est ce nom en entier... Je pensais que tu pourrais soit choisir un pseudo, soit raccourcir ton nom... Mais c'est un détail... En tout cas, pour toi, cela doit commencer à être "a dream come true" !! Great... Il était dit que quelque chose d'artistique devait sortir un jour de notre petite famille!!
Bravo grande soeur

ps : le prénom du garçon a changé finalement ?

Katia said...

Thank you all for your warm and kind words. Et un merci particulier à mon petit frère. :)

Just was checking in on your progress and got a glimpse of your cover! How exciting, and I really like the subdued color pallette and the swirly cloud sky -- like Van Gogh's "Starry Night"! I see the title also changed. I like it!
