Admittedly, I had a bit of trouble with the letter "Y." I didn't want to repeat a title (even though I've done several letters from the Harry Potter series, they're all from different books.) There's the yellow brick road, but I'd already used The Wizard of Oz for the letter "E." Even though I enjoyed that book very much, I've never been able to make it through the next book in the series. There's Ygramul the Many, but I'd already used The Neverending Story for "U." I also thought about picture books, but I don't think there's really anything I can add to the man with the yellow hat from Curious George and the illustrations from Extra Yarn are pretty much perfect... So after much searching for children's book characters, settings and titles, I scanned the index of The Classic Fairy Tales by Peter and Iona Opie. The illustration for the letter "Y" comes from a fairy tale called The Yellow Dwarf.
I'm an aspiring author / illustrator.
