Blogging for a Cure, The End
(featuring two new ’07 snowflakes)

h1 November 18th, 2007 by jules

Below is today’s Robert’s Snow schedule.

Pictured here is an ’07 snowflake, entitled “Cupid and Psyche,” which was not on the initial list and so not covered by a blogger in the Blogging for a Cure effort. I’m happy to be able to feature it. It was created by Rebecca Guay and can be bidded upon in Auction 3. Guay’s most recent illustrated book, I believe, is Muti’s Necklace: The Oldest Story in the World (Houghton Mifflin, 2006), written by Louise Hawes and described by School Library Journal as “an original fairy tale about familial love and its power to thwart even the majesty of Pharaoh,” the adaptation of and expansion of an ancient Egyptian story. She also illustrated Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple’s The Barefoot Book of Ballet Stories, published in 2004.

And, just because I know of at least three more snowflakes that are new but not snagged by a blogger to feature, I’ll show you one more today (and can show you the other two tomorrow when I wrap up Blogging for a Cure and everyone starts bidding on snowflakes). This one (below) was created by Kathy Jakobsen, one of America’s premier folk artists. Having lived once before near D.C., I like that there’s a snowflake out there for us cherry-blossom lovers. Kathy’s most recent illustrated title is My New York: New Anniversary Edition (Little, Brown Young Readers, 2003).

If you missed them, you can read yesterday’s features here. Fairy tale lovers — and beginning children’s book illustrators wanting to soak in some advice from a working illustrator — may want to read Chicken Spaghetti’s feature of Joan Waites.

Don’t forget this page where all the features are being compiled in one spot. Tomorrow, Auction One begins! I’ll do a wrap-up post then, reminding everyone who can afford it to go purchase snowflakes and support cancer research.

Here is today’s schedule, the very last one:

  1. YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It’s the last day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This has been nothing short of amazing.
    You know the song at the end of Babe that the farmer sings to the pig? You know we’re going to have to make a day for you…

  2. Oh –!! And Cupid and Psyche are gorgeous, as is the cherry blossom festival that is the D.C. flake. I love cherry blossoms too.

  3. Cupid and Psyche: OH WOW!

    Great work, Jules – you’ve been amazing throughout. Here’s hoping the auction goes gonzo this year.
