i love the music of a fine frenzy and so when i learned--via oh joy!--that alison sudol (alison is a fine frenzy) treasures an owl a friend gifted her, i felt an odd connection being that i love owls, too. the connection grew deeper as i continued to read the post and discovered alison wrote her owl friend, talko the who (such a cute name for an owl!), a story to cheer him up from always falling down on his unstable legs; the story grew longer until one day it was a book. that's how i feel about violet and earnest (the rhinoceros and duck heading up this blog). i love them so and they deserve a story/book/storybook written about them. and someday the book shall be finished.
