Accept my compliments. I am Thanasis from Greece, we met two years ago via email. I'd also like to tell you how much happay i was this year when going to the bookshop last week i saw the Christmas Carol with your drawings translated in Greek language. A great step not only for kids but also for us. I already had the Irish book when i visited Dublin, now i have also the Greek version.
Have a nice Christmas indeed

Talking about Christmas, have you seen the latest "Christmas Carol" on the movies? Check it if you have free time, i am sure you will discover what i saw already. I am sure that the directors are 100% influenced by your work and style.
