Speaking of Little Boys

"He Dreams of far away places" is the cover of this eight by six board book. In one of my yahoo groups Kelly Burton challenged us to do something with Paris. I love Paris, but have always sort of found their pomp and circumstance somewhat amusing. I think of running off to Paris to love and write bad poetry or joining the foreign legion. So this is my little French boy dreaming when he, too can become a man and join the foreign legion, only to realize that home is all that matters.
This was a four page book that I chose to glue and cut a niche in on the left. The little soldier boy is inside the niche with the transparency sandwiched between pages to give in dimension with the definition of soldier. The metal embossed copper says "Where little boys become men". My scanner has a hard time with metals and glitter.
