Chantelle & Burgen Thorne

Chantelle & Burgen are currently illustrating two titles for Gnome Road Publishing. The first, FINLEY: A MOOSE ON THE CABOOSE (written by author Candace Spizzirri) is set to release in the spring of 2023. They bring to life the story of an adventure-seeking Alaskan moose who wants nothing more than to ride the rails to distant destinations. Unfortunately, rules are rules and Conductor Jones won't let Finley aboard.


As if that weren't enough, Chantelle & Burgen are certain to delight baseball and science fans alike after teaming up with author Catherine Ciocchi for WHAT'S THE MATTER AT THE BALLAPARK?, a STEAM-filled, fast-paced rhyming story that gives young readers a closer look at all the matter that makes up what truly matters at the ball park and beyond. It is also set to release in the spring of 2023!
