Last year, when Father was busy finishing the drawings for Freddie's Blanket, there were a lot of conversations at our house about what a platypus would wear. Dresses, shoes, boots, hats, pajamas... what will they wear? We knew they would wear some slippers to keep their feet warm, and Mother immediately thought of the French Press Slippers by Melynda Bernardi. They were the perfect slippers to keep Freddie's mother's feet cozy! Melynda was very kind to allow us permission to reference her slippers throughout the book, and has a beautiful brand new baby of her own, so the timing seemed perfect!
Can you see the French Press Slippers here in the finished version of the illustration?
On to the exciting news- one of Melynda's readers will win a signed copy of Freddie's Blanket this week! If you are interested in learning more, you can read all about it here!
