This series of mini-posters is based on original humorous drawings done in pen and ink. They look like old-fashioned children's book illustrations but are intended as a tongue-in-cheek version of something you might find in a traditional classroom. Each "animal" is reading but has some other issue they are dealing with, as well. The tag line refers to their status but also serves as a good-natured scold to the viewer: don't just stand there, read something! I am a big fan of books and wanted to do my part to encourage the ongoing support of publishing, libraries and the printed word in general.

Given the references, these might not be suitable for kids under the "YA"-level but I like to give everyone a chance to reach up for meaning, rather than dumbing things down. Middle school kids and up should get it. One hopes.

These are printed on 80lb glossy cover stock and come in a set of 5, one print of each design.

Reg the bloodhound: "How could a bloodhound miss those clues? Reg loved mystery novels but always had to read them at least twice."
Nicole the deer: "Monsieur Monet was a no-show but Nicole didn't really mind...this new novel by Colette was terrific!"
Todd the lion: (Thought bubble:"...wait...'Restive'?") "Todd always gets hung up on that one and resents that it doesn't mean what it seems to."
Sally the lemur: "Go to your party", thought Sally,"my sorority wears travelling pants."
Lee the elephant: "According to this, Lee was supposed to have a great memory...but he couldn't even remember where he put those other books."

Love these retro pen and ink prints! Great gifts for teacher friends and also my boys, who have had a fondness for reading books in the not too distant past. (Owner was kind and quick to respond to questions)
