Like wax lips, candy corn and Etch-A-Sketch, some things were meant to be around for a long time. "Hey Diddle Diddle" is one of those classics that I have been itching to illustrate. It's fun to read aloud and begs to be illustrated. So, Jeff Dinardo called and dropped this poster project onto my lap. This was just plain fun to do. Flying bovine and running cutlery is what great literature is all about.
Like you, I can think of another dozen family favorites I'd like to get my hands on. The "Dick and Jane" series. "Old Mother Hubbard", "Jack Sprat" and "Little Jack Horner" to name just a few.
