New Book illustrated by Talitha Shipman: Everybody Says Shalom

The newest book I’ve illustrated is available in stores now!  Everybody Says Shalom is a spirited picture book tour of Israel with a cast of colorful characters and exotic locations.  And if you look very closely, you’ll see a tiny pink lizard named Gili hiding out on every page.  I know kids are going to have fun finding him.  I had a wonderful time researching and illustrating this book.  Now I can’t wait to visit Israel myself and try some of that famous falafel!  Everybody Says Shalom was written by Leslie Kimmelman and published by Random House Childrens’ Books.

  • Beautiful message and illustrations! That pink lizard is sure to be a hit. My medium-sized boys still love to look & find in picture books. Shalom!
