Characters Going on a Field Trip

Clyde the Green Giraffe, Hoozy Whatzadingle, Wilbur the Duck Who Flew Upside Down, and Rusty Bear are going on a field trip. I’m tagging along to make sure they behave. Hopefully, they (rather than me) will be among the ones hanging on the walls.

My colorful friends have been invited to be part of an art exhibit titled Storybooks by the Bay.  It will be in the Town of Danville’s art gallery and will feature a collection of art from children’s books.

The gang is excited and raring to go. I keep trying to explain to them that the event is nearly two months away and there is a lot I must learn and do between now and then. This is my first such exhibit.

These characters are from my books titled The Duck Who Flew Upside Down (my most popular children’s book), Clyde and Hoozy Whatzadingle (two of my most popular characters), and Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too (the former name in the title in honor of the carved redwood bear that greets visitors to my small redwood grove and fern garden, and the latter name in this title in honor of my four-year old grandson.)

I’d love to hear any recommendations you may have as to which scenes to depict from the books.

With Love,
