Terrible in pink?

Terrible in pink?

 

Terrible Lizard’s soliloquy moves us to empathy, or maybe not in the gorgeously tactile T is for Terrible (Macmillan)– a 2005 Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year by Peter McCarty.

Children’s novelist Julie Lake (Galveston’s Summer of the Storm) walks us through the Paleozoic pastel pages, while I handle the not-so-steadicam.

We recorded after hours in  Julie’s primary school library that Julie set up and ran for two years. I’ve borrowed today’s clip from the Make Your Marks and Splashes! online course on children’s book illustration. Children’s book illustration with teeth! So perfect for Halloween.
