Marcela Calderón - The Fearless Octopus Jul 13 2018

We are so proud of Marcela Calderón whose recently finished illustrating a beautiful book with Jellycat! Marcela's detailed illustrations and playful characters, combined with the soft watercolour textures and tones, makes her a brilliant illustrator for Children's Book Publishing, especially for readers aged 0-5. "The Fearless Octopus" is about Odell the Octopus, who sometimes gets scared.  A shadowy shape might be the big shark, but the again, it might not.  Only one way to find out - face your fears and see for yourself! A beautiful book about courage and discovery. A trip with Odell is an undersea odyssey!

"It was so great to collaborate with Jellycat and the author of the text, Charlotte Christie, again in another project. The project which I worked before was Wilber the Whale and Me. It's always great to illustrate a book based on a soft toy knowing the kid who buys the toy could read, or listen, to the book story before going to bed. Hope you like it as much as I liked illustrating it!"
