six

And the Dish ran away with the Spoon.

Here are all the cast of characters. My question was: why did the table settings run away? Also, how did everyone else react to this?

The great thing about also writing for children's books is the perspective it gives me on how a story is constructed. My art instructs my writing as well as my writing instructs how I create an image. It's fun to explore. Sometimes they come out at the same time, and I have to scurry between both illustrating and writing to find the meaning of what I am trying to communicate.

Will the dish and the spoon come to a fork in the road? I am really enjoying your sketches, Alicia. I love your pencil lines!
