I have always loved trolls!  I had a collection of them when I was little, and now my daughter has six of them, each with different coloured hair.  Their faces are so cute, and they look as though they could be quite naughty!

This is a letter G that I painted for a special exhibit at the Just Imagine Story Centre in Chelmsford.  They asked 26 authors and illustrators to decorate every letter of the alphabet!  I chose G because of my book, I Do Not Eat the Colour Green, and because I live in Glasgow which is known as the Dear Green Place.

I used acrylic paints, little paper daisies and real dyed wool for the hair!  I like the way the hair makes my troll look like he is popping his head out of the letter.
