Flowers for Algernon

Do any of you remember that book??? I remember reading it in school, but that is about all I remember. I know there was a mouse in the story... This is the mouse from the illustration I am doing for the fall conference. I finished inking it today, and hope to start painting tomorrow. It would be great to go back and read some of my favorite books from when I was a kid in school: Where The Red Fern Grows, The Trumpet Of The Swan, Island Of The Blue Dolphins, War and Peace......

I'm loving this already!

"War and Peace" is on my to-read list, but I loved "Island of the Blue Dolphins" and "Where the Red Fern Grows." Classic!

I never read War & Peace.... I was just trying to be funny! Glad you like the little mouse, Christina!

Wonderful! Can't wait to see the rest and colored too. I am a big fan of color but you stink because your stuff looks great black and white too! Cheers to lovable art Nina!

Thanks, Lovable Art Amy!
Rachel- can't believe I forgot the Jungle Nurse! What was I thinking!?! Now that is great literature! Far Out!
