Lori NicholsIf you haven’t heard of author/illustrator Lori Nichols, you’re in for a treat: she’s a gem! Lori has created four Maple & Willow books: Maple, Maple & Willow Together, Maple & Willow Apart and Maple & Willow’s Christmas Tree. She’s also illustrated three Orq books by David Elliott: This ORQ. (he cave boy), This ORQ. (he say “ugh!”) and This ORQ. (he #1!)

If you follow Lori on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll be entertained and immersed in the world of children’s book illustration. Enjoy these fun videos, first shared by Lori during “Inktober” on her Facebook page:
