Then, he trys the meal, the food the other girl cooked. The meal is so delicious, the father eats all and clean. Finally, the father finished the delicious meal.

I use watercolor as my favorite medium for my children's books and children's magazine illustration. It was fun to illustrate for children's magazines, especially that the magazine is also your children's favorite magazine. Our children are now reading the children's magazines, like Spider and Cricket, with my watercolor illustrations in them.
