The first Conni-books are out! (Carlsen Verlag)

The 4 new Conni books that just came out.
The first 4 books of “our” little Conni are out!

As announced in our previous post, we worked together on these titles: I took care of the general layout, the characters and the final coloring, Marc sketched the backgrounds. We’re very happy with how these turned out!
Let’s take a look, shall we?

These are the 2 big picture books, “Conni goes to kindergarten” and “Conni is angry”:

Here are a few sample pages from “Kindergarten” (no text because we don’t have the rights to that):

The picture books are gorgeous and in hardcover, each one comes with a poster to hang on the wall.

The other two books are smaller and come in glossy softcover. These are from the product line which is called “Lesemaus”. The “Lesemaus” books are not limited to Conni, but there are hundreds of different and varied picture books for children in a very affordable edition.

These are the small 'Lesemaus' books.

Here are sample pages from “Conni goes to the dentist”:

We are really, really happy wit how they turned out, the publishers did a terrific job on these. We can’t wait to see how the readers react to this new take on their beloved character.
