In a recent family poll I swept all aside and came top as 'busiest illustrator in my house'.

This little boy in the picture above is trying to cheer his mum up by giving her breakfast in bed. In the touching poem by Natalia Perry, the boy's mum suffers from severe depression.

When I was first asked to provide a couple of drawings for it I was worried that a poem about depression might get a bit Sylvia Plath, ending in a sad death, but it doesn't and all works out well in an uplifting finish.
