Heh, I've gotten so used to drawing wigs from Monsterville and Oliver and the Seawigs that one couldn't help but make an appearance. And I think the robot is a tribute to Viv Schwarz's book, Welcome to Your Awesome Robot, which my cuddly animals have reviewed here. And the fox, well, perhaps a Roald Dahl reference, but I just love foxes.
Very curious who's going to win tomorrow's Kate Greenaway and Carnegie medals! How many books on the shortlist and from previous winners have you read?
