Thinking of fitting the text into some form of wing shape
Or just having a few feathered words...

Doesn't stand out as much as I would like..
Added 'illustrated by' hand written.. my handwriting eugh...
Drop shadows to make it more bold

and a simple sans serif didn't seem to have enough character
