Welcome to Banana & Basil. We love help inspire kids to do better for each other and the planet we live on. The kids of the Banana & Basil series love to give back. Always looking to have new adventures and be part of a greater cause.
Would you like to have a portrait recreated of your family, children’s book style?
We have created a lovely solution for you. Send your favorite family photo and we will create a new version through our eyes. These make great gifts for your kids that is a fun reminder of a happy time that kids can carry with them for years to come. Let our author and illustrator collaborate on a piece you and your family can cherish!
The Author: Kelli Hughes will meet with you to gather a bit of information about your family and begin constructing a short story based on an experience or activity your family has enjoyed. She will then work to recreate that experience in her own way.
The Illustrator: Jackie A Gentile will then take your family’s image and turn that into a work of art. After illustration and writing are complete you will receive a 8x10 formatted piece of art for your family to enjoy!
A design just for you!
