Simple Song

Twinkle, Twinkly Little Star by Jerry Pinkney takes a simple song and turns it into a masterpiece.  The art is done in pencil, watercolor, and colored pencils on paper. And they are magnificent!  It amazes me how the artist can take such an old classic and make it so beautiful.  The imagination soars here with the chipmunk flying off to the stars, plunging into the depths of the pond, to be rescued by a swan.  Or was it all a dream?  Lovely, lovely, lovely - take your time and read and reread.
