JUDY MOODY AND FRIENDS SERIES by Megan McDonald, illustrated by Erwin Madrid

Art direction & designer for series of early-reader chapter books


I became the designer for the JUDY MOODY AND FRIENDS series in April 2013, beginning with books #3 and #4. I primarily focus on pacing the story to fit the series format and working with the illustrator to create very specific art for each spread to aid our early reader audience. We have simultaneously published hardcover and paperback editions nearly every season, so we move at a fast pace while still ensuring the series is consistent within the Judy Moody universe as well as paying attention to the series design and branding.
