Another little peek at Nursery Rhymes
Just finished my latest pop-up title tentatively called "Nursery Rhymes" to be released in Fall 2009 by Little Simon. Above is a sample piece of art I made to get myself in the mood. I had a fantastic time making the book, because it took me back to the first time I ever encountered books, like around when this picture was taken. I don't think I'll ever get to wear those pants again.
Some people say you can't remember that far back into your childhood, but I do have very distinct memories of being two to three years old. I especially remember boldly jumping down the steps which explains my intense unease at great heights. I don't remember what happened afterward - so I must have been knocked out cold.
As I have in past books, some of my family make cameo appearances as some of those classic Nursery Rhyme characters like...
...my little cousin, Jillian, as Mary Mary Quite Contrary...
... and another cousin of mine, Charlie, who catches a tiger by the toe.
