Full-Color Hoozy and Story Excerpt

Here is the first full-color illustration for my latest children’s story, Clyde and Hoozy Whatzadingle along with the text depicted in the scene.

But, when Clyde returned that night

He saw a most frightful sight.

That Whatzadingle swayed way up high

Waving a wooden spoon in the sky

While standing on a pineapple pie

Balanced on a rickety ladder.

And what that was on was even sadder:

In an old bath tub sat a great big ball.

But even with that it was not all.

Under them was a big blue bike

Balanced on a bright red trike

In a wheelbarrow painted white

On a broken bucket. Oh, what a sight!
