    Welcome back lounger. Firstly, let me wish you a happy new year. Hope you took the chance to relax and de-stress. Over our December break we kept our idle hands busy. Talking to illustrators and harvesting plans to bring you more diversified content. The most obvious yield of our busy hands is our new uncluttered website theme. We have stripped everything down to the essentials with the aim of making browsing the features, the Cabinet and the Bookshelf more enjoyable. You may notice we have removed our comment section, but that is certainly not a subtle hint. We still love to hear from fellow Loungers, and you can always reach out to us on Twitter, where we will be waiting to hear your thoughts on the new theme.

    With that out of the way and without further ado, I present to you our very first inspirational feature of the 2016, Alice and Martin Provensen. The beloved couple are famous for illustrating more than 40 children’s books together, many of which they also wrote. They are also responsible for bringing to life Kellogg’s Tony the Tiger.
