Got a guess? It's time to share it.
It's Polly! She's the pirate's











Mother.

Ok ,just want you to know I laughed really hard with this.

I had never seen watercolor work from you before! Looks wonderful. Are you planning on using it more often?

Whaaat? I thought this wasn't out until next year! Now I have to rearrange my ENTIRE BUDGET to get it now, as obviously my library cannot live without it. Grumble, grumble.

This book looks awesome and so funny! When this book comes out we're going to HAVE to get it!

Ericka–Maybe. I always want to use whatever the book seems to call for, and I thought this book needed to look a little old-fashioned.

Sorry, Jennifer.

Gracie–Maybe she will when you're older.

"Mother" doesn't rhyme with "share it." That's dumb.

Without a doubt this book will be gracing my book shelves very soon, simply just so I can see how you use watercolour or is that watercolor or water-colour or coloured water. Obviously I'm hoping 'Guess Again' will have an answer :-P

Yes, this book looks like it will be a BIG laugh! I completely thought that was Santa with a sword for a second!
