So, let me introduce you to the very talented Leah Gilbert! I met Leah and her husband several years ago through a couples class at the church my wife and I attend here in Denver. A couple years we learned that she was signed by an agent which was just the first huge step of many many more to come that would let Leah make her dream come true. Well, guess what. First, a little about Leah before we start. How awesome is that?!?! I have always loved reading and drawing.

Characterised by its bold, naive-style illustrations and gentle anarchy, it tells the playful and imaginative story of how the everyday routine of a mother and her young daughter, Sophie, is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of a handsome stripy tiger. When father comes home he cheers mother and daughter up by taking them out to dinner. I made it up to amuse my children because we were bored and because their father was away filming for very long days at a time. Both in the stories and in the talks she gave to very young children, Judith was most amusing about Mog and her endearing and infuriating characteristics. She gave Mog the human traits she believed cats to have while managing never to detach her from her animal self.
