I fell with this one, when I first read the story.
It's about a sensitive little crocodile who really, really, easily cry whenever something bad happened, but this time he really give a real tear from the bottom of his heart, not a crocodile tears as in the idioms, and this story so fun to illustrate that make me want to make it as comical and 'silly' but also cute for the children.
And it was about 6 months ago, when I was called by one f my favorite children book author in Indonesia, Clara Ng.
Quite a surprise, and I was more surprised when I found out that I was going to work with my illustrator friends in these book series, the series are called a 7 minutes story, there are 7 books each illustrated beautifully by 4 different illustrators. We shared process and encouraged each other during the making of these books, I'm really happy that I could experienced this. Girls you're all great!
So again, enjoyed!

Isn't it sweet?
I always want a Cheongsam with batik print for my daughter, at last I've found a local online store that made it, and I just love the combination between Indonesian Batik and the oriental style.
Lately in Indonesia we have a campaign to wear batik as our cultural heritage, and I can say the campaign goes well, so many beautiful pattern and so many ways to combine the fabrics, love it!
And this one is for the Chinese New Year the year of the tiger, may this year bring luck and prosperity to all of us, Gong Xi Fat Choi everybody!
