Did you have to shuffle these around or anything to make them match?? This works WAY too well!

Minh said...

Thanks Tanita! All the images are from "The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!", but I did have to shuffle the pages around a bit. But for the most part, the Pigeon did the bulk of the work.

Two of the pages are switched:

For in that sleep of death
What dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
Must give us pause

Are the lines in the right order.

Otherwise: brilliant!

Thanks for the catch, K. Corrected!

Loved this. Laughed so hard I fell off my chair. Thanks for contributing this post to the Carnival of Children's Literature.

truly inspired, Mo.
Reading this, I realize just how much I wish we were still doing promotions together at IRA together.

Hi Matt from RIF,

I'm very flattered that you thought Mo did this, but it was just me inspired by Mo's illustrations. But like I said, very flattered!
