Possibly The Randomest Book You’ll Ever Read

On one of E’s earlier works, Daddy helped him with a short author bio in which it was conveyed that E’s goal is to make 100 books.

He is barrelling toward this goal, let me tell you. He’s kind of obsessed with my stapler.

Here’s a creation from this past week. I love how he’s unencumbered by the fetters of plot, theme, or common threads of any kind, swinging freely between the physical and the metaphysical.

This is the title page. He’s really into stormy weather patterns right now. I’m pretty sure the circular one at the bottom is a typhoon.

Only one of each – no need for overkill.

These names come from his class list, hence the abundance of appropriate vowels.

He makes jump tracks just like this. You’ll notice that spoilers are very important to him – as they are, verily, unto the world.

This looks like he doesn’t understand food groups, but he’s actually been talking quite knowledgeably about them recently. Apparently the colour-code is the critical part.

You have to have a Stuffies page.

And of course you DOUBLE HAVE TO have a Dragons page.

Spoiler alert… this Colours page might just lead to a spinoff book.

I’ve always loved his plane drawings beyond all description.

And the heart-pounding dénouement: CANDIES!

    I was just about to go to bed grumpy (was doing taxes all night) and then I saw THIS! What a wonderful illustrated journey through E’s glorious imagination! And such a fun artist! I like how organized he is…so many great categories. Thanks for sharing! <3

    SPOILER alert – bwahahaha!

    I love them all but maybe candez best. And calrz. But food groups is extra special. He very clearly made sure there were no groups there.

    LOL!!! Thanks for this!

    The food groops page intrigues me: it looks as though the upper right one is just features added to the teddy bear that shows through from the Stufez page. Which, if you think about it just right (wrong?) is a food groop.

    I think it’s probably about time for a list of “Watch for…! Coming soon!” follow-up titles…

    The “just right” way I was thinking about it was that teddy features are a group (groop) of items which sniff out and consume food. Not so much OF food as FOR food.
