I wish I had thought of this!” Chris Van Dusen, illustrator of Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson book series
Ben loved pretending he was an animal. But when his mom said, "clean up for dinner," Ben claimed, "Animals don't, so I won't." However, he didn't expect two could play the same game!
Next child and parent transform into penguins, leopards, bears, and more animals in a humorous and enlightening dance of wits. This inventive tale reinvents the familiar bedtime routine.
Dave’s curiosity for the natural world is always obvious to me in his work, and he transfers that love for life to whoever chances upon it. His drawings and compositions show the wonder of the natural world, while his humor and his story layer it with life.” Matt Nolte, Character Designer, Pixar, and illustrator of Brave: One Perfect Day
