In my story VG and Me there is a scene where a big person is being helped out of a very thorny situation by a creature only about as tall as his nose. This is a sketch of the attempted rescue by the little guy named VG. It will become a full-color illustration for this story which is likely to be included in my children’s book project under development. The book’s title is A Day in the Shade of a Tickletoe Tree.
This new book will likely have about six to nine of my children’s stories, most of which will never have been published in a book before.
Below are some lines from the story VG and Me which describe the scene depicted in the above illustration.
“V.G. tied the rope to the winch
Then yanked a crank and it moved an inch
V.G. pushed with all his might,
But I was stuck mighty tight.
I feared the ladders would begin to break,
How much more stress could they take?
Then, very much to my surprise,
The ropes and I began to rise.
V.G. gave it all he had.
He was mighty strong for a tiny lad.”
