Blake The Snake

Be my Valegtine!

A new breed of children’s book written by a mother and illustrated together with her children is perfectly imperfect.

Blake The Snake wished for a leg that would fit his end. And he was very, very specific about it... Will he get his wish granted?

Blake The Snake is written by Tokyo-based Veronika Bar and illustrated together with her 2-year old daughter and 5-year old son. Random stickers? Totally out of the lines? Unfinished coloring? There was no place for worry about perfection.
“That doesn’t look like my sketches at all!” cried the mom author.

Let your children fill in what Yoni and Thea haven’t.

It all started as a scribble on a wall on a snowy winter day. “I see a snake!” cried little Thea, and they started to color it in. “And a fish! A big fish!”
That night, after the children fell asleep, the story of Blake The Snake was born. From one mother’s feelings of overwhelm and chaos, chronic lack of sleep and time famine, came the other end of the snake: hope, orderly rhyme and a good heap of fun and humor!

This is a book you will want to read over and over again, yet to discover another funny point or ocean-deep detail.

Compelling to mothers of children ages 3-6…”and up!” says Yoni, who is now six. Comes in large print ideal for beginning readers.
