Glad to be back at doing the weekly prompts for Animal Alphabets. This round we have been focusing on Monsters from movies or books. So A was Audrey II from the “Little Shop of Horrors”, B is for “Babadook”, C for “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, D for Demogorgon from “Stranger Things”, E for “Edward Scissorhands”, and F for “The Fly”.
When I was a little, I remember watching the “Really Rosie” animation tv special which had stories by Maurice Sendak and songs sung by Carol King. I loved it so much that I sought other books by Maurice Sendak in the library. One of Maurice’s books in particular has always been a favorite of mine, which was “Pierre A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and Prologue”. So I chose the moment where Pierre puts himself in the Lion’s mouth to eat him. This was for my agents for November Picture Book Month.
Here was my piece for the zine “Historical Pooches”. Proceeds went to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
This weeks Colour Collective was Sweet Potato. I’ve had a story that I’ve been trying to figure out concerning a little pumpkin patch kid. He has no friends because hes different from all the other kids in school, so he decides to build himself one. But it will not be an easy task.
