Here's Elena posing with the finished product of about twenty-five hours of work...a seventeen page sales list. Not every little girl loves animals, nor particularly zoo animals. Not every mother works for a toy company that sells to zoos and aquariums. When I bring home rough drafts of my work, it's like Christmas to Elena. Here she is practically swimming in the pages of specials items, screeching, "OH LOOK!!! A meerkat!!!" As if she were spotting a celebrity! It's a lovely shared interest.
