you've probably seen meomi's designs somewhere before. you can find their stuff on buy olympia, giant robot, and other places that are escaping me right this second.
i recently got the octonauts books for michael. i absolutely love them (or the one we read anyway - we didn't get to the second one yet) and i'm pretty sure he liked them too. they're fantastically adorable children's books that i want to buy for every kid i know. the story is cute and the artwork is gorgeous!
