The Woman That Wanted to Eat a Child

The Woman That Wanted to Eat a Child

These are specimen pages for a children's picture book, from a brief given to us as part of our third year coursework. It is based on a story about a woman who is so evil, she wants to eat a child. She doesn't manage to persuade any of the townsfolk to give her their children but she goes home to find her own child sitting there...
The brief also asked us to incorporate the text into the pages, thinking about the interplay between words and pictures.
