This is Ellen Injerd's entry for Susanna Hill's Pretty Much World Famous Illustration Contest for Children's Illustrators! It's exciting to see my daughter take part in Susanna's first illustration contest. You can read more about the contest here. She was to choose one of the winning entries from Susanna's March Madness Fractured Fairy Tale Contest. You can read those stories here . (Can you tell we have a lot of fun on Susanna's blog?) Ellen chose to illustrate Lauri Meyer's delightful story, "The Princess and the Stinky Cheese."

The Princess and the StinkyCheese


The contest will be open from Thursday April 24th through Monday April 28th EDT. You can read all the entries from the links or the direct posts on Susanna's blog. "Entries will be judged by multi-talented, award-winning author/illustrators Iza Trapani , author and illustrator of over 20 gorgeous picture books, and Lisa Thiesing, author and illustrator of at least 16 beautiful and fun picture books and early readers!"

The finalists will be posted Thursday May 1st. At that time, you can join the fun and vote for which illustration you like best! The voting will close at 5 pm on Sunday May 4th, and winners will be announced Monday May 5th. Lots of excitement taking place! Thank you for stopping by!

You are definitely a children's book illustrator. You understand what children like to see in a book!
