Chickens arrive. A photoessay.

Today is as a big day. My copies of Chicken Story Time arrived. Seeing a new book for the first time is always a very exciting day for me… that gives you a good idea about how much excitement I have in my life but anyway…

Here’s a little photoplay on how it all happened.

Once upon a time…

Who could it be? Pulled away from my work which I was trying to avoid anyway.

Yup! It’s a real book.

The dedication is right.

It’s even got a back cover so I feel pretty good about it now.

Maybe artists do look like their art. I’m just a chicken I guess.

Look for Chicken Story Time at fine bookstores all over, and you can also order it online. I always recommend you buy 3 copies – just in case.

  1. Are you touring with this? Like,near Minneapolis? My niece rescues chickens and keeps them in her house (yes, I know), and I’d love to get a signed copy for her 4-year-old son.

    Delighted to share this little bit of excitement with you, Mark! (Actually, I think it’s a LOT of excitement, whatever that might say about the rest of my life.)
