A New Career for Skunk
The Easter Bunny's Assistant by Jan Thomas is just as hilarious as her other books. Boing...Boing...Boing...along hops skunk with the Easter Bunny to help make Easter eggs. Look out when skunk gets excited, you know what happens - S-Q-U-I-R-T - stinky stuff. The Easter Bunny asks skunk to please control himself, but skunk has some self-control issues. There is an information page on making Easter eggs. I contacted the author/illustrator, Jan Thomas and here is how she renders her art: "The artwork is digital. I start by sketching and redrawing the book by hand (several times), then I scan in the sketches and do the final version using Adobe Illustrator." Thanks Jan for telling us how it's done!
