Gunther ~ Ginger Nielson

Although I have illustrated many books, this picture book is the first for me as both author and illustrator.
Gunther the Underwater Elephant has been a long time coming.  The first paintings were done when my children were all at home and in school. They are all now married and we have two little grandchildren to add to the family.

I think the long years in between Gunther's beginning, the rejections,suggestions, edits, and the final manuscript and illustrations for his book were worth the wait.  I hope many will enjoy the story of a little elephant who becomes an unintentional explorer and a hero as well.

The book is available on Amazon.com, at the 4RV Publishing LLC site, and at any and all bookstores for the asking. The ISBN is helpful for the bookstore: 978-0-9832740-2-5

In some versions of the fable the coveted yummy is specified as cheese in others it's just referred to as a nondescript delicious morsel. Personally, a Rainbow Cookie is worth more effort over any old piece of cheese.Unless of course, if it's brie on lovely french baguette.

 I am a full time children's book illustrator and author. My home and studio sit at the top of a hill, near the edge of a forest in semi rural New Hampshire. There is a magic wand on my desk and a dragon in my basement. Everything else is nearly normal.
