Thanksgiving Escapes

My book The Great Thanksgiving Escape started a long time before it looked like this:

The art below is the earliest art from the book I could find – and this is from way before it was a book at all. This sketch was the first – or one of the first – ideas I had about kids who are stuck an a grown-ups party. After a year and lots of revisions and more revisions, it became The Great Thanksgiving Escape.

What the drawing captured was a story from the kids-eye perspective and and that our antagonists would have two different personalities. Ideas are messy things. You never know what they will become if given the opportunity through effort and thought.
