Going through my old sketchbooks, drawings, etc. (because I have been doing this for about 15 years on a regular basis), I found these long-forgotten ones.
In another lifetime, though not so long ago, I wrote and illustrated a couple of "books" for two children I loved. I picked a really good art book, filled it with little stories and accompanying illustrations to suite the child, personalized it, and gave each their book for their birthdays. It was a long labor of love, but it's one of the best things I've done.
