Two years ago while I was on sabbatical I had the great good fortune of working with the incredibly talented and ultra super nice Troy Cummings. Troy colored the cover of Optical Allusions and his vision for the colors turned the cover into an eye-popping, eye-catching piece of eye-candy (eye book, eye puns, get it?). Anywho, Troy is a magnificent illustrator and his new book The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out (Big Time) is now available in fine bookstore near you or online. This one has it all: an arthropod star (sweet), a fun twist on a familiar on song and pictures that make you go homina homina homina. You really should buy it and if that doesn’t convince you, here is a Youtube trailer. Plus, he has small kids to feed, so y’know, think of the children!
