Before magic pumpkins and fairy godmothers, there was just Anne of Tacloban and her wishing tree.

It’s nice to know that it only needs a pot of tea to cause a creative spark. Really happy with this illustration! Inspired by a BBC4 program about how fairytales evolved. It seems one of the original Cinderalla stories was about Anne and her wishing tree. Very beautiful and dark too! This print now available in the shop.

Wow, the 30 book challenge has got a good response and it seems there’s quite a few of you who are interested in joining. Nothing you need to do, just get reading! And create a list of all the books you do read and if you want, share your thoughts on your blog :)
I hope you don’t mind, I’ll reply to your comments / suggestions here and you all get a plug too ^^
Christine – I’m the same! I’ve just started my second book and it’s going great. I do like Jane Austen, but her books are a hit or miss sometimes.
Frankie – Moab is my Washpot: OMG, thanks for the suggestion! I didn’t think about it, I love Stephen Fry ^_^
Jess – Don’t worry, I started Monarchy sometime end of December too and finished it just after New Years!
Jo Anne – Blindness by Saramago – I like dark and heavy stuff. Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add this to my list and pick it up from the bookshop.
Ramintessah – Just get reading hun! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on your books soon. I’ve not read either of those books, I’ll check it out on Amazon.
Sheng – Cool! Haha, keep challenging me! I hope I read more than 30, but best be safe ^^
Gail – I’m glad you’re inspired. Anything to get people reading more ^_^ And no need to put pressure. Only set a goal you think is realistic and achievable with your time management.
Pinayhekmi – Wow, it’s been a while! I’ve got to catch up and check out your bloggy :) I’ve the His Dark Materials triology, but I have a hard time getting into the first book. I am told that the following books are excellent though! Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll check it out :)
Odette – Oh I love Angela’s Ashes! I read it when I was in middle school. It’s such a beautiful story. I remember being teary eyed at the end!
Hannah – I should’ve guessed you’d find your way to my blog somehow ;) I’ve heard only good things about that book and I’m definitely planning to give it a go this year, especially with the setting in the Philippines! It’ll be interesting to see how people observe the culture from a different perspective!
