rhyming animal alphabet: G & H
This is an idea I'm playing with to push my alphabet animals (earlier in this blog and on my website) into something which might prove more entertaining and possibly more commercially viable...? I haven't written anymore of the alphabet as yet, waiting to see if people think I'm on the right track with this. In case you're wondering the only reason I started with G & H, not A & B, is that Giraffe was the last animal I did so I wanted to work up an H.
I've been reading some of my Edward Gorey Amphigoreys of late and I suppose you could call this my homage to his outstanding macabre ABC book "Gashlycrumb Tinies." If you have never read it I heartily recommend that you google it!
