Jingle Bells, Rudolph Smells
Written by Deano Yipadee and Illustrated by Paul Beavis
Published by Scholastic NZ 2016
Written by Deano Yipadee, aka Mr Yipadee, this sing-along Christmas picture book was my first chance at illustrating someone else's story. One of the main challenges was giving each reindeer a personality so the reader could have fun following their various predicaments through the book. Jingle Bells, Rudolph Smells was Scholastic New Zealand's best seller for 2016 and will be back in bookshops for Christmas 2017.
