Here it is!! The last two-page spread to cross the finish line, to get completed. This will be the companion piece for the city-scape illustration. How many years have I been working on this project?? I'll have to see if I can figure out the answer to that question. I know that I will be asked by students and teachers as I make my various 'author' visits to schools. Curiosity got the best of me...... I just went and checked the year that my first book rolled off the presses. The publishing page reminds me that it was 2004. I'm not sure that I knew that. It made it's premier at Concordia's conference -- which was just last week. So, it's now six years and one week old. I think it's realistic to guess that I've been at work on this for at least five years now. Seriously. Wow.
I've started to work on the chart for the sign language with the goal of having it finished by the end of the week. The other details are the acknowledgements page, the publishing page, and to get the three endorsements for the back cover. Creeping, creeping. Closer, closer!
