I pulled this Kevin-Hawkes illustration, one of my favorites from 2008, from the 7-Imp archives in order to not get cyber-pinched today. You may remember that this comes from The Road to Oz: Twists, Turns, Bumps, and Triumphs in the Life of L. Frank Baum (Knopf Books for Young Readers, September ‘08), written by the very talented author of a whole slew, to be precise, of award-winning biographies for children, Kathleen Krull.
I simply never tire of looking at that illustration.
My kindergartener told me yesterday that her class set out some leprechaun traps. I find this a disturbing and dramatic turn-of-events for the poor little guys, but let’s hope they survived this morning.
And a happy St. Patrick’s Day to you. I’ll be back tomorrow with an interview. Until then…
