"Scurry Up and Read" Illustrations

Well, I’ve always said it-  Nothing encourages little kids to read more… than hamsters in sweatpants!   I used to own a hamster or two and one thing I knew for sure is that you never store books you care about in an active hamster cage… nor do you try to dress them in work-out clothes.   But hey- we’re living in the 21st century now and hamsters can do whatever the heck they want to.  Anyway, these friendly little fur-balls were illustrated for an educational company who has kept me very busy for over 15 years now.   Thanks to them, I find myself drawing lots of books and lots of animals in weird clothes.
