It maybe April Fools' Day, but it is no April Fool for UK writer and artist, Garen Ewing, as his long awaited book The Rainbow Orchid is going to be published by Egmont UK. Egmont UK is the No. 1 publisher of children's character books in the United Kingdom.
Garen had his first ideas for The Rainbow Orchid in late 1990s, but started creating The Rainbow Orchid book in 2002. I had the pleasure of watching his project grow over the years, and very thrilled to read that all his hard work has resulted in a dream finally coming true.
Mr. Ewing reports it will be produced in three volumes, with part one printed in 2009. You can read more at this official press release at booktrade.info. We send our hearty congratulations to Garen Ewing and his project The Rainbow Orchid! Exciting news, indeed!
