The Christmas of 1895 was anything but merry for the Palindrome family, for twenty days prior, twelve-year-old Christopher Palindrome had disappeared without a trace. His presents remained unopened under the great tree until early in the 21st century, when a wealthy family moved into the old mansion and disturbed them.
B. Lee strove to unseat Christopher Palindrome from his academic throne.
A century of glory was an adequate period of honor, and she was giddy for her reign to begin. Two more spelling bee victories and the title of Most Honored Student would be hers.
Christopher will be remembered for his aptitude and zeal for learning, his shy benevolence, and the legacy of genius for which his school paid him homage by re-christening itself "The Palindrome Academy for Learning Arts".

They're all, "OMG!"
(No, these two are definitely not like that.)
I wonder how they would look on a painted background...
|"No, take it with Instagram!"|
So I painted them again, and changed their hair and outfits a bit.
Girls are always changing hair and outfits, in case you didn't know.
|"What filter is THAT? I look so washed out."|
Then I had a "happy accident."
|"Hi. I'm Marcy, and I have a tote bag."|
Marcy looks better on her own, I think.

At last the time has come again for picture-painting!
Here is a small piece of an initial sketch of a thing I hope turns out OK.

Like Peter Rabbit, I'm gonna hop on over the GWB and set up shop amid the corn, carrots and lettuce at the wonderful new Oakland Farmers' Market. You can spy me and many copies of Percy and TumTum: A Tale of Two Dogs in my booth from 9am till 1pm.
Special thanks to Jane Graham for hooking me up with this special event!
