Picture Book Marathon Day 22

Picture Book Marathon Book 20

Picture Book Marathon Book 19

Well it’s happened. During every marathon there is the chance to hit the wall. It usually happens around mile 22 or 23. It happens when you start to pass the same people, over and over again. Or when you see people starting to walk and it looks very inviting. The only thing to do in a marathon, when you hit the wall, is to catch a ride with the sag wagon or keep on running. So I will keep on running or in this case, sketching.


“The Crazy One-Eyed Cat” The idea for this book came from a conversation with my son and daughter-in-law. They have seen the crazy one-eyed cat. They say it ate Jimmy’s pet rat. It attacked Milo when he played in the sand box. Things got worse when Mr. Morgan sat an old pan of cooked Tilapia Fish outside to soak overnight before he washed it. In the morning, it was licked clean. The nights got crazier after that.  They couldn’t tell if the screaming at night was from Milo and Jimmy or if it was THE CAT! Don’t leave your windows open at night. This would be a great story to share with your little children right before you tuck them in bed and leave them alone in their dark rooms.
