I stood and stared for quite a while
till a Lion sang to me and smiled...
...pretty soon I knew the tune
and I sat and sang under the moon
and the jungle rang in joyful harmony.
(If you can name that tune I will give you a gold star!)
|Red Tide. The illustration that won.|
I want to hear about the hard work behind the story.I don't know Elise Parsley, but I don't think I'd be wrong in assuming that her success was earned with hard work and time. I want to hear about how many books she wrote before finally finding her voice. I want to know how long she's been honing her (truly) fantastic illustration skills. I want to hear about the uncertainty so many of us face at some point in the process and how she pushed forward anyway.
