Gina Gadsby Calleja began as an illustrator of children's books but was always interested in writing and decided to combine the two. As a child, she invented stories with pictures, and now she is just doing the same thing as an adult. Her two grandsons appear in many of her illustrations, and occasionally their cat appears too.
Wizzo and the Cookie Babies
This gentle and humorous story gives youngsters the reassuring message that the world cherishes children. Wizzo the Wizard, who lives on the moon, becomes bored while his wife is away on a trip, so he decides to bake a batch of cookies. But he makes a mistake in the recipe and, when Ms. Wizzo returns, she finds the house full of real, live babies - one hundred and forty-four, to be exact! Of course, she loves them all!
