"Helen illustrated a book I wrote for my nephew's third birthday and I couldn't have been happier with the way it turned out.  I gave her a scattered draft of the story and pictures of my family and she turned it into a cherished keepsake.  My nephew (and his parents) were amazed at how much the illustrations looked exactly like them.  A year later, the book is still my nephew's favorite thing to read!"
