Really? It was only two years ago when the ABC Creatures took over my imagination every Wednesday for 26 or so weeks. The gals and guys, most of whom live at the Honalee Bay Aquarium & Gardens, were all involved in one way or the other with the planning of and/or participation in the wedding of Winnie the Wallaby and Thomas the Tree Kangaroo. It didn't become apparent until week 8 that the ABC story was about the upcoming nuptials.
The ABC Creatures don't like that I'm moping about election results. To distract me (and anyone else who wants to be distracted), they decided to take over Thursday this week and next. I don't mind. I love the ABC Creatures.
Agathe the Aardvark is quite an amazing wedding planner.
Twins Bingo and Bubba Byrd work hard and party hard, too.
Charlie the Camel loves to participate in the cable car ringing contest in San Francisco.
The Daffodils—Davey and brothers Dicky and Davey—always take time to smell the flowers.
Edwina the Egret, maid of honor, put her career search on hold to help with the wedding.
Filemon the Flying Squirrel wonders what took him so long to take the leap of faith.
Ghandi the Giraffe and Gator Guy (pronounced Ghee) are the best of buddies.
Hazel the Hammerhead Shark is a professional hula dancer at the Honalee Aquarium.
Iago the Iguana is in love with Edwina the Egret. Ooooh.
Judge Jennifer the Jack Rabbit likes to click away with her camera.
Katja the Kookaburra owns Katja's Kaffeeklatsch. Guess who'll bake the wedding cake?
Leticia the Ladybug is the lead singer of her band, who will play at the wedding.
Max the Monarch Butterfly and his clan will take care of the decorations.
The ABC creatures are taking me over to Thursday 13 and I Like Thursdays. Come join us, if you like. :-)
These are really cute! What a fantastic idea and so creative!ReplyDelete
Thank you, CountryDew!Delete
I'd love to see these as a children's book! Lovely..ReplyDelete
Thanks, Colleen! Me, too. I've gotten as far as printing out the pages to revise.Delete
We so do need a good distraction. Thanks.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, Liz. :-)Delete
Hello, ABC creatures, what a creative idea. I love them all, well done. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Squee!!!! I LOVE these! So inventive and funny and clever. Those dolphins smelling the daffodils! Guy and the giraffe! OMG how adorable. I will have to come back again when I need uplifting. These should be in a coffee table book.ReplyDelete
(the election... oy vey.... )
Thanks, LeeAnna! A coffee table book rather than a picturebook may be more like it. Something for me to think about.Delete
ABC fellows are great at providing perfect distractions. They are brilliant!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Soma!Delete
And what a splendiferous wedding it was! :)ReplyDelete
It was! I'm tickled pink that you remembered, Widders. :-)Delete
Oh thank you for the awesome illustrated story. I can fill it in with my wee brain.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, Siouxzq! :-)Delete
I am definitely in need of distraction right now for the reason you give and at least a couple more, one of which I’m sure you can probably guess. And this Wedding Story is a great way to be distracted. I remember a few of the “chapters” from before and I’m glad to be reminded of them and to see all of the alphabet together (well, after your next post). You are so talented!ReplyDelete
Sallie, it takes a talented person to know another one. :-)Delete
Su-sieeemac - I sure could use a distraction! Your drawings are colorful and amusing. You go girl!ReplyDelete
