IF "Fast"




A fast drawing of a faster than expected experience. One minute you have a 21 " long baby- next minute that baby is towering over you. Step stools become necessary when asking "Did you do your homework?" "Did you clean your room?" "Did you feed the dog!?" - Like I know anything about this- personally? ... hmmmmmmmm.... could be.

Fabulous illo. Love the design. The mother's pose is great and so is the boy's expression. You can tell he is enjoying his mother's need for a step stool and reach. This reads very well. Perfect story telling.
