Naughty boy

I have returned to illustrating Bene's book about Kumba, who prefers climbing the trees to seeing his private teacher. Bene has found a publisher and the release is planned for next year.

Do you know Italo Calvino's book "Il barone rampante" (the rampant baron")? It tells of a boy who climbs up in a tree and never comes down again, living a full and adventurous life up there...Nice illustration!

Thank you, Concetta! No, I didn't know about that book. But it reminds me about myself as a kid. I'll look for it in the library.
