Brrrrr! It's getting colder now.
My coat begins to grow.
Time to start my winter stash
Before the freezing snow!
All my friends like stealing food,
Which isn't very kind.
I'll be smart and hide a ton
For us to seek and find.
Sniff! I find some acorns. Yum!
I stash them in the ground.
Next, come spinning maple seeds.
I pounce. I leap. I bound!

Nancy Leschnikoff is an illustrator-designer based just outside of London in Kent. Growing up with her father who was also a professional illustrator, Nancy learned early on that doodling (all the time!) was her thing. She went on to study design and illustration at Nottingham Trent University, which led immediately to design studio work followed by 15 years as a children’s book designer at Usborne Publishing.
Her hand-drawn digital style, confident layout and typography skills, and bold approach to color have led to a variety of work in publishing and other design genres such as licensing, advertising, branding and packaging. She has a quirky sense of humor that translates into her art, and she loves to work on projects that make children giggle.
