Remember When Picture Books Were Fun

Remember when picture books were just plain fun to read. The stories didn’t have to have a deep moral, or life lesson. When reading it, you weren’t concerned about character development, or growth. The stories just had fun characters placed in fun situations. You loved reading it because, well, it was fun.

Along with my friend and illustrator, Ron Robrahn, we are working on a series of stories that bring the fun back to picture books. The series is called, Myth Illogical. It follows some nonsensical antics of some well know mythological creatures. It’s good, clean, comical fun. There are four main characters, Bigfoot, Minotaur, Dragon and Unicorn. Along the way, as the stories develop, other characters will be introduced.

Ron has begun character development and truly knows how to inject personality into each and every one of them. Each character will have his or her own quirks and demeanor, and that will just add to the fun.

With Eartha the Sea Turtle,  Steven the Vegan,  and my forthcoming bullying story, I’ve explored some serious topics … it’s time for some old fashioned fun.
