New Book

Eric Comstock

I don’t know the publication date yet, but I have a new book that will be coming out soon.  It will be published by Simon & Schuster and illustrated by Eric Comstock.  This is a sample of his fantastic “retro” style.  The book is about some little shapes that get stuck in a jungle gym and the effort the geometrical community makes to help them escape.  I will announce more details when they are available.

New Fruit and Veg Merch

BUY ALL MEANS…

It’s been a busy, winding-down-to-the-end-of-the-school-year month.  I’ve been working on a new book and lots of new items on zazzle.  I got rid of a ton of old, tired looking things and am in the process of replacing them with newer fresher designs that will print out more satisfactorily.  I’ve done a bushel of very bright and bold kitchen towels with fruits and veg that I hope folks will like.  There are three dozen or so matching reusable shopping bags and some funky T-shirts, too.  Click on the link below to investigate!  I appreciate a look-see, even if you don’t buy.

Ode to Mother’s Day

50 Ways to Please your Mother
Anne Miranda

The day is coming, and it’s coming right away.
You’d better go get a gift, yeah…shop for it today.
Pay close attention to the words I have to say.
There must be fifty ways to please your mother.
Your mom expects that you will give her gift some thought.
Just be sure…
it isn’t stupid junk that you ran out and bought.
If you bring her nothing, man…she’s bound to be distraught.
There must be fifty ways to please your mother…
Fifty ways to please your mother…

Just, cut her some slack, Jack
Make it by hand, Stan
She don’t need new toy, Roy
How thick can you be?
Make a big fuss, Gus
You don’t need to shell out much.
Think where you should be, Lee
Now make yourself free!

If you don’t treat her well, she’ll be in so much such pain.
You’ll have to…work like crazy-just to make her smile again.
There’s no excuse, my boy…and there’s no way to explain!
…cause there are fifty ways!

I say, why don’t you try to plan things out tonight.
Get yourself up in morning and take mom out for a bite.
Just go see her…yes, do anything to treat your mother right.
There must be fifty ways to please your mother…
Fifty ways to please your mother…

Just cut her some slack, Jack
Make it by hand, Stan
She don’t need new toy, Roy
How thick can you be?
Make a big fuss, Gus
You don’t need to shell out much
Think where you should be, Lee
Now, get yourself free!
