Conner MacSheep – Graphic Novel english

As I mentioned before, there were so many images that came to mind while I was writing that I started looking for an artist who was interested in bringing the story to life.
As luck would have it, I met Johann Karpp at the children’s and young people’s book fair in Saarbrücken. He was immediately enthusiastic about the were-sheep and volunteered to be a cartoonist.
Since we were quite far apart, we often emailed, wrote and made phone calls. And finally the story was finished.

Part 1 tells Conner’s life from his birth to his teenage years, including the Highland Sheepgames.
