Get Billie Webb’s latest picture book, free for Kindle July 21 – 25!
“Anna Leese Likes Peace” is a rhythmic bedtime story that contains large, colorful illustrations, silly animal sounds, and a variation of a the popular lullaby “Hush Little Baby.”
A young child, Anna Leese, experiences a variety of sounds: silly animal sounds, curious people sounds and noisy baby sounds. Eventually the sounds become overwhelming! Magically, Mommy brings peace to the evening by singing a soothing lullaby that calms Anna Leese and lulls the animals and the baby to sleep.
“The illustrations took a lot of time,” Billie Webb explains. “I wanted the images to properly convey the myriad of emotions that the characters experienced.
“I am very happy with the evening scenes. I wanted the transition from noise to peace to become almost magical, and I really think it worked!
“However, not all of the illustrations were successful right off the bat. I did really struggle with the appearance of the mother, and at the last minute I completely changed her appearance! So yes, this book took a while. I did not want to release it until I felt I got it right.”
The Kindle version of “Anna Leese Likes Peace” will be promoted for free for 5 days: July 21 – 25.
