My Book Is Being Read on Dinosaur Island

I know I’ve bragged on my dad’s drawing before, but isn’t this just great? “Dinosaur Island” is the pretend-world about which he and my boys spin many outrageous stories, often involving (you guessed it) dinosaurs. Still, the adventurers have gone on whaling expeditions off the coast of the island and even, I believe, engaged with extra terrestrials. And one of my dad’s bedtime secrets (don’t tell my boys) is to have the overly loquacious Smith and Jones enter into boring dialogues (or monologues), which unfailingly exerts a soporific effect on the boys. That’s the real brilliance here.

Now that we’re overseas, he sent them this, that the magic may continue…this time, with visuals! Graeme is already busy drawing another installment.

{Ahem, and notice what book Jones is reading? My dad is shameless.}
