Good morning. Fun book. and crickets and songs ( or lack thereof) remind me of that amazing recording of cricket songs slowed down. I'm assuming you've heard it? Like Gregorian chanting? Hope your day is inspiring....

valerie, you are an amazing resource--gregorian crickets! no, my experience has only been with august crickets the ones who sing the changes of summer.

First? Congratulations! It's a delightful book and I am totally envious that you made it. I've been yearning to make artists books for the longest time, but have yet to actually even start one. One day...

Velma Bolyard said...

henrietta, you're right, that's exactly what i was up to, and i didn't even realize it. thanks!
jennifer, this one just HAD to happen, and so it did.
