I really love Melinda's bright and oh-so-sweet prints and illustrations. Her simple and clean style as well as her use of colour let my eyes travel across her work effortlessly. I would love to have her french language children's book, Le Géranium, on my shelf one day. You can see a small sample of the images inside as well as read a synposis of the story about the extraordinary character, Philippe-Aubert, here.
