I've got a new book coming out this month; ANIMAL HOUSE written by Candace Ryan, and illustrated by me. It comes out July 20th from Walker Books--you can see it on Amazon by clicking my link to the right, or by clicking here. It is the story of a family who lives in a house made of animals (there are even a few pinnipeds in it!)
This is the cover art--minus the title and author/illustrator attributions. And as you can read on the sign, the house is a Gorvilla. Get it? Everything on or inside the house is an animal, and every animal has a word-play name that describes it's purpose, like Gorvilla (Gorilla + Villa = Gorvilla.) There are eight animal/word-play/house items on this cover, including the Gorvilla. Can you name them all?
And I'll give bonus points to anyone who can coin a term for these animal/wordplay/house-items. Furnimals? Animobjects? Biodomicilians?
There will be a lot of animal/word-play/house-item guessing games this month, so get your wordplay hats on. Also, construction has begun on a LEGO ANIMAL HOUSE. It covers four large green "Lego ground plates" four! Hopefully I'll have it finished by the 20th when the book launches.
Here we go!
