It was made of patterned fabric in very bright colors, and he just gravitated to it.

After I had the idea to write the story about a boy and his stuffed owl going on an adventure, I began to think about how I would illustrate the book and what the characters would look like.

Then it occurred to me that it might be even more fun to leave room for children to imagine the characters themselves. Maybe a boy reading the book pictures Calvin looking the way he looks or the way his best friend looks. Maybe Ollie has bright colors, or maybe he looks more realistic.

I painted the scenery to give children a starting point, but they get to go through and illustrate the book themselves. I hope children will enjoy the process and treasure the book they illustrated! (less)
