You're too kind, Ms. B.
...There's a story behind the way this turned out. You see, this picture book is a true story about three ducks that lived on a pond I know. When I wrote the story, the ducks were still there, so I planned on illustrating it with photographs of them. Unfortunately, I then hit my fourth and fifth years of undergrad, and I wasn't home nearly often enough to get the photos. By the time there was enough time, the ducks no longer lived on that pond. Nobody knows what happened to them. No photographs, so I had to substitute something at which I knew I was reasonably good...ponder, ponder, ponder... abstract lineart! But abstract lineart is too empty for the target audience, so this adaptation to tribal designs.
Thanks for your confidence in its publication-readiness. If (when!) it gets there, I'll let you know. Maybe I'll wind up with enough copies to send you one, if you'd like.
