Deimantė RYBAKOVIENĖ

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

Books…They live next to children and can be big and small, ornate and humble, redolent of paint or of mother’s childhood. Sometimes they make children laugh, sometimes they frighten, sometimes they teach or whisper into the ear the biggest secret, sometimes they comfort and stroke the child’s hand with their soft pages. Illustrating books is great fun – I hope the roaring lions and crocodiles I draw are not that frightening, and the enormous cruise ships will carry boys and girls on the waves of the fairy-tale ocean…
