We took a wee break. Now we’re back with a Tale of Epic Proportions.
…a fun new easy reader with a great text and illustrations. I hope these two will collaborate on more stories. I strongly recommend purchasing the library bound edition, as this is one that will be read again and again!
…back up to speed. Scott’s home, had a great time, has excellent brothers. I am working this afternoon, and it is delicious. Can’t blog yet, too much to catch up on, but today’s Thicklebit is another glimpse of the behind-the-scenes here in the Bloody Glen. BONNY. I meant Bonny, of course.
Scott’s out of town, ergo I am out of steam. All I can do today is link to the new Thicklebit. This is the one for which one of Scott’s panel descriptions read:
Mom is working in the kitchen. There’s a bunch of fruits and veggies on the counter. (This is the least realistic panel description I have ever written, and two days ago I wrote a shot description in which the Hulk picks up Thor and hurls him into the sky.)
Next week after he comes home, I will totally think of a witty comeback. For now, I have to go fold some laundry. LAUNDRY, you guys. Preposterous. Frederick the Mouse never had to do laundry, is all I’m saying.
“That was so three seconds ago.” One of my favorite (and most bewildering) parenting moments ever.
Tomorrow is new Thicklebit day! Sometimes this parenting gig is just…baffling.
A review of The Prairie Thief at Jen Robinson’s Book Page. “…a delight from start to finish.” *beams*
And this art, oh, I’m swooning. Kay Nielsen’s Stunning 1914 Scandinavian Fairy Tale Illustrations.
About to post about squeeeee new books pubbing tomorrow—but remembered I forgot to share the link to the new Thicklebit! So here’s that. Oh, sure, the children may look angelic, but really it’s Lord of the Flies around here. Er, there. In that TOTALLY FICTIONAL family full of TOTALLY FICTIONAL children who just happen by TOTAL COINCIDENCE to say things I’ve chronicled in the Bonny Glen archives over the years. I mean, you can tell it’s fiction because the mother has red hair. I don’t have red hair, now do I?*
*It’s possible that when Chris Gugliotti was doing the first sketches for the characters, I mentioned that I’d always wanted to be a redhead, hint hint. But you can’t prove it.
