"Dream Big, Little Pig" will be released in March 2011.

Illustration alumnus Tim Bowers (CCAD ’79) recently illustrated a new children’s book written by Olympic figure skating champion Kristi Yamaguchi.

Dream Big, Little Pig, tells the story of how Poppy the big-dreaming pig accomplishes her dreams of becoming a ballerina, singer, and supermodel—even though people keep telling her no.

His books have received such honors and awards as a Chicago Book Clinic Honor Book, a Child Magazine Top Pick selection, the Children’s Reading Round Table of Chicago Honors Award and several Children’s Choice Awards. More recently, Bowers received the Child Magazine Best Children’s Book Award and several of his books have been chosen as Junior Library Guild selections.
