Jackie Morris

And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon, the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
~ from The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear

Art by writer/illustrator Jackie Morris today. Jackie's work caught my eye in The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems. It's a gorgeous book. Thank you, Jackie, for giving me permission to share these!

She fed him rose hips - I could lose myself in that cover!

I certainly understand your wanting Sleeping Child; it's a beautiful piece. In fact, ALL of the pieces containing the Snow Leopard caught my eye...especially the cover drawing.

I also have to admit I like Little Beau much for the subject as for the art. I really wonder what it's all about.
