I used to think that the ability to turn back time would be the greatest possible gift, so that I could undo all the things I wish I hadn’t done. But grace is an even better gift, because it allows me to do more than just erase; it allows me to become more than I was when I did those things. It’s forgiveness without forgetting, which is much sweeter than amnesia.

Welcome to the very first installment of our new original feature, Penguin Teen Behind the Book! In this series, we’ll hear from editors about how they found the authors they work with and why they decided to publish their books, giving you an inside peek into to book making process here at Penguin!
First up, we have Shauna Rossano, an Editor of Putnam Children’s Books at Penguin, to talk about how she discovered artist Kit Chase and how Kit’s new book, Oliver’s Treecame to be!
As an editor who loves picture books, I’m always on the hunt for new illustrator talent. One of my favorite places to poke around and look at artists is Etsy, and a few years ago I stumbled upon Kit Chase’s shop: Trafalgar’s Square. From the first moment I spotted her adorable animal prints, I was in love—each animal was cuter than the next! And I quickly saw that I wasn’t the only one who loved her—Kit has over 22,700 “admirers” on the site—and growing! I could tell that Kit had huge picture book potential, so I sent her a “love letter” and asked if she had ever thought about writing stories to go with her art. She told me that, coincidentally, she was working on some story ideas with her agent—who had contacted her around the same time after seeing her work.
A little while later, Kit’s agent sent me some sample illustrations and a story featuring three friends: Oliver the elephant, Charlie the rabbit, and Lulu the owl. I had seen a number of potential “characters” among her Etsy prints, but Kit brought these three child-like animals to life perfectly—their innocent, playful relationships reminded me of some of my favorite picture book classics, and I could immediately picture them starring in many books together. After fighting off several other publishers in an auction, we signed Kit to a three-book contract.
Oliver’s Tree was not the initial story that Kit’s agent submitted, but after falling in love with the characters, we worked with Kit to find the perfect story to bring readers into the world of Oliver, Lulu and Charlie. What I love most about this book—aside from the melt-your-heart illustrations—is the friendship story. Feeling left out is a universal experience, and this story proves that there is always a way to include everyone—sometimes you just have to think outside the box!
Update again, with lines! By far the MOST tedious part of animating :’D
I’m still trying to figure out good lines in flash, but this is all 1.0 pencil stroke. Plenty of mistakes here, but it’ll do |D If I didn’t have respect for clean-up artists before, I sure do now.
Next update will be the last I guess? This took four days. I don’t even like Shauna that much. I just got the visual in my head, y'know? Also the gif is more sped up than the swf and I’m not sure why that is. Still works, but I’ll figure it our before the last update.
my best friends are cooler than me and everyone wants be friends with my friends but instead they like ME it's weird// also I'm in love w/ one of them (she's you)
everyone this is shauna please go love her she loves broadway and her life is a drama and her lipstick game is always strong my interesting fact: I’m also in love with you too and I love your dogs even more
