Ever since the first copies of The Pancake Cat rolled out of the photocopier and were presented to family members as gifts, young readers and listeners have been begging for pictures and illustrations.

  1. GR8 drawing indeed. My daughter, Karalie, does ink/pencil drawings. She’s constructing a websight now to display her works. I’ll send her sight when completed, which should be within the month, Sept.
