Catwalk by Nicole Gabor

Hey, everyone! I am super-excited to share the news that I’m about to author my first series of kids’ books!

The books will be based on a popular South Korean cartoon called Gyuri & Friends, produced by TunTun English. This series will follow little dragon Gyuri and his friends (Bella, Ducky, Teeny, Leo & Jojo) on many adventures. The stories will be written for kids ages 3-4.

Hi Everyone! Here’s a glimpse of my new picture book, Catch Him! (TunTun English, 2013). It’s about a monkey who escapes from the zoo and gets into all sorts of mischief around town!

For the artwork, I was paired with a very talented South Korean illustrator and graphic designer, Sunkyong Kim. As you can see, her illustrations are super-fun and just perfect for the story. In fact, my two-year-old son cannot get enough of the silly monkey’s antics! 

 Catch Him!

 

Owl’s Nighttime Surprise, an early reader ESL book I’ve written with simple language and drills, is currently in production with Tuntun English. Here’s a peek of two book panels that combine the text (not yet finalized) with the illustration.

Love the artwork? It’s the talent of Ethan Long, an Emmy-nominated animator, illustrator and author, best known for Disney Jr.’s Tasty Time with ZeFronk

Kudos to my good friend, author Jennifer Byrne, who just published the very useful and hilarious girl’s guide Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Needs to Know. This book makes all those time-sucking tasks — like doing the laundry, baking a homemade dessert for a school fundraiser, and maintaining a socially acceptable level of hygiene (shaving, again!?) — seem effortless!

Check it out, then consider buying a copy for all the women in your life this holiday season!

 

I’m excited to announce that I’m publishing five new educational books for young readers through Tuntun English, a publisher of Korean books for kids learning English.

Ben and the BlastBen Helps the World, Sam the Spider, Snowbunny and Catch Him! will be published next year.

More info to come!

Hi Everyone! Here’s where I’ll post updates, news, and things that may be of interest to people in the writing & editing community. Hope to see you back here often!

Best,

Nicole
