Why are some things just for Ana Dalt? What makes her so special? And most importantly… Who is Ana Dalt?
This fully illustrated dust jacket picture book follows the narrator as they try to determine who Ana Dalt is and what makes her so special. Why can Ana Dalt have things kids can’t? Why can Ana Dalt stay up late and watch scary movies?
This clever play on words will have readers questioning who Ana Dalt is while they enjoy the simplistic rhymes, adorable art, and a relatable young protagonist.
B.D. Cottleston is the pretend name of a real writer who wants to leave it to the reader to enjoy these stories without worrying about what B.D. was thinking when they were written. As a life-long fan of Winnie the Pooh, B.D. picked this pen name to celebrate the spirit of Pooh’s greatest rhyme. As Pooh might say: "Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston pie. A fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly. Ask who B.D. is and we’ll reply: Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston pie."
Marcin Piwowarski was born in 1972 and has pursued both an international and domestic career in painting and children's book illustration. He is self-taught in traditional as well as digital illustration and has managed to make over one thousand books during his twenty-year artistic journey. His artwork is mostly inspired by nature, daily life, and music. He likes to mix magical and mysterious ambience with down to earth elements of every-day reality, which results in thrilling, but comprehensible pieces which are loved by children and adults equally. As a father of three kids, he understands what to include in his art for it to be adored and eye-catching. Despite all of that, the most important thing about his persona is, as he says, that he prefers tea over coffee.
