This is a six by eight altered child's board book. I found that a lot of the images I use are small children or women. With this book I wanted to focus on the "guys." I am the mother of five boys. This should be easy. Not so. Sorting and hunting for the right image that had a timeless appeal was a lot harder than I thought. I wanted to try and capture the spirit that boys and young men have when around each other. That playfulness that any moment can erupt into a competition. Those moments of innocence and devilment. I am not sure I accomplished that, but I do know this was a really fun book to work on.
