About the Book

Grandma Tillie knows just how to royally entertain her grandchildren. To Sophie and Chloe’s delight, whenever Grandma Tillie babysits, she seems to disappear, only to be replaced by a parade of lovable characters.

There’s Tillie Vanilly with the bright pink hair, star of The Tillie Vanilly Show, who loves to tell jokes and dance the conga, Chef Silly Tillie with the lampshade hat, who offers up a dinner of Giggly Chili, and Madame Frilly Tillie with the sparkly eyeglasses and  towel turban, the world’s most creative bath-bubble stylist.

But who will appear to tuck Sophie and Chloe into bed? Hiker Hilly Tillie? Explorer Chilly Tillie? Zoo-lady Gorilly Tillie?

No! It’s just plain Grandma Tillie, the best story-teller of all.

About the Illustrator

Anne has been a freelance illustrator since 2006. She spends part of her time writing her own picture book manuscripts, and  developing characters that appeal to children. Her mixed-media technique consists of gouache, colored pencil and salt on Strathmore 500 series Bristol, which is scanned and altered in Photoshop. Since 2009, she also uses Corel Painter X to  recreate her texture and style digitally.

Her clients include Babybug Magazine, Oxford University Press, and the Santa Anna Zoo. Her first picture book, The Warmest Place of All, was published by Pleasant St. Press in 2009.

Anne also enjoys painting theatrical sets for children’s dramatic productions. She lives in central Florida with her husband, two children, and Mimzy the westie.

  • It is a nice feeling what your are reading makes you smile or laugh at the words. It always makes me want to share the word, line or paragraph that I have just read with someone else.
