Today was my final day at the lovely bookshop I have come to love and loathe in equal measure. I feel quite melancholic about leaving. But just incase I was getting sooky, Niki made me delicious fudge and then chose the UBS leaving present for me. It is an AMAZING (!!) book called "Around the World with Mouk: a Trail of Adventure" about a small Parisian bear called Mouk who decides to travel the world, but keeps in contact with his lovely friends back home the whole time. It is written and, more importantly, illustrated by Marc Boutavant - a Parisian designer/ illustrator/ man about town. He's quite beautiful too. But anyway,
what is super beautiful is the cover of my book:
It makes me feel very positive about my current life choices.
