Tell Me a Tattoo Story

A twist on the bedtime story and parental I love you story, Tell Me a Tattoo Story by Alison TattooStory_coverWEB-245x300McGhee and illustrated by Eliza Wheeler uses a father’s tattoos as the story starters. Told entirely in the voice of the father, we hear about each tattoo: when he was a little boy, when he met his wife, his time as a soldier and the birth of his child. Sweet and honest, this is a lovely read for all ages.

Read here for a behind-the-scenes look at the illustrations.
