That's All, Folks!

All good things must come to an end... and the Unnecessary Children's Book Sequels That Never Were is now over (and I hope you thought it was good while it lasted!). Farida has a nice two part round-up of the submissions (Part I and Part II) that didn't get illustrated, but were hilarious nonetheless. Truth is, I would have tried to illustrate them all if I had the time, and I may still work up another one here and there if I get a chance. But it was a lot of fun, thanks everyone and maybe we'll do this again soon!

Here is a quick round-up of the results:

First Place: Harry and the Can of Purple Spray Paint (Kate Coombs)

Second Place: The Very Hungry Larva (Elaine Magliaro)

Third Place: Kitty's First Meteor Hurtling On A Terrifying Death Path Toward Earth (Hannah Mahoney)

And some of the Honorable Mentions:

Yay! Wet dog made the cut!

You are seriously talented, or demented, or both. Thank goodness you're in kidlit.

Yat-Yee, thanks!

Once i read your suggestion, i had the image in my head right away and i had to get it out. Demented or not, no one wants the image of dogs sniffing butts stuck in their head!
