I wrote and illustrated, Little Silly's Big Adventure, a children's picture book! It has been submitted to publishers, waiting to see what they say. Here's a few illustrations and excerpts for you to enjoy. Please contact me if you are interested in reading the entire story.
"Little Silly had never been out of the yard alone before, and she felt brave. She was able to go where she liked, and stop at each new smell.
-sniff, sniff, sniff-
She soon lost the butterfly, but found a new friend as a lizard scampered across dry leaves.
-rustle, rustle, rustle-
The game went deeper into the woods."
"Once the jar was off, Silly realized that she was no longer a Space Dog, but a jungle explorer … so she set off on an expedition searching for the lost City of Doggie Biscuits. She crept through vines, around large boulders, and between tall reedy plants to reach the edge of a nearby pond. Silly heard jungle birds squawking, skraw, skraw, skraw; frogs escaping into the pond, kerplunk, kerplunk, kerplunk; and large insects flying, buzz, buzz, buzz.
Silly was dreaming of all the biscuits she would eat upon finding the Lost City, when suddenly she froze! She spotted an Alligator with its black, scaly head floating at the water’s edge. Silly crouched, ready to leap onto the alligator…
she barked a loud warning…
Ruff! Rufff! Rruufffff!
