It's Turkey Time!
Although buried in a full-time job - and, most recently, motherhood (baby Pike made his entrance at the end of September this year) - I was, last autumn, lucky enough to have been commissioned by the wonderful Creative Director at Albert Whitman & Company to illustrate this gorgeous tale from the very talented Times of Israel journalist, Jessica Steinberg, about a young Jewish immigrant family finding their place - while retaining their identity - through this real-life Thanksgiving tale. (You can read more about Jessica and how she came to pen the story in this Times of Israel article: http://www.timesofisrael.com/gobble-up-this-real-life-jewish-thanksgiving-story/). The book is now available to buy online through all the usual channels (hurrah!) - and there's a bonus recipe for Kugel, a traditional Jewish dish (with added cranberries, in a nod to this American seasonal celebration) at the end which I suspect will go down an absolute treat with a large cup of tea...!
