The Lonely Lion and all the Animals from A to Z

Filed under: Book,Children,Fiction — Steve Abhaya @ 10:51 pm

The Lonely Lion CoverThe Lonely Lion & All the Animals from A to Z is a collection of alliterative children’s stories for adults and the children who love them.  I began these tales, one day, with a casual remark to a friend about the similarity between the words juggler and jugular. He suggested I write a story about it, so I did. It was called ‘The Juggler in the Jungle.’ After that, it was only a matter of time before I began to write stories using all the letters of the alphabet.  An artist friend, Christine Schibly, was visiting, not long after these stories were written, and I thought she might be a good one to illustrate them. She has a narrative style in painting that I could not match. She agreed to do the wonderful work you see below, and this book came into being. Her original watercolors are 11×14. Christine lives in San Francisco. The second section of animal paintings are my own, later, less complex versions of  The Lonely Lion. The paintings in that section are 5×7 watercolors.
