The illustration is charming. It looks as though this mouse family is heading out to California during the Great Depression. Sort of a "Grapes of Wrath" theme. Mr. Tripp should get the rights to this illustration series and make this into a children's book. I would buy it.
Quote from Wallace Tripp:
"In children's books I look for artists (not necessarily the best draftsmen, either) with vitality, integrity, humor and a powerful story-telling bent. There is too much arty, pretentious, self-indulgent illustration (often not a considered accurate reflection of what the story says) looking as if intended as a portfolio presentation or a contest entry. Give me N.C. Wyeth, Ernest Shepard, Garth Williams, Bill Peet, Raymond Briggs, Richard Scarry and Graham Oakley and forget those [who perpetrate] lovely curlicues and fabulous puce washes."
