No LAND OF DOOM again, today--I swear they'll start up again tomorrow. At this point, I'm asking myself why I decided to do a really ambitious post (the picture book marathon) while simultaneously doing a really, REALLY ambitious post (THE LAND OF DOOM.)
Seriously, why didn't somebody stop me? I could have spread this material out over two and a half months.
Anyway, we're in it now, and there's no going back.
Picture book #14--the hump-day book is:
Title: The Ugly Pterodactylus
Synopsis: It's the Ugly Duckling story with flying reptiles. The ugly one turns out to be, not a beautiful swan, but a giant-headed Dimorphodon--who ends the story by eating his adopted family.
I was pretty happy with this idea. Flying reptiles don't get the attention their dinosaur counterparts usually get. My wife walked by and saw me working on it, and mentioned this song from the PBS show "Dinosaur Train."
Bam! It's like Hibernation Station all over again! Although this time, I was too far along to stop. Stupid Dinosaur Train.
