see a new picture - a duck, whose tailfeathers are the
fish's tail fin. its a really fun book, the
illustrations are simple pastels, and i think a
similar approach could be used with the
extend/transform. also, thanks cindy for the magritte

ps our advanced art final project is inspired by all
the crayon ideas: we're going to do a mixed media
mandala collage with ironed crayon shavings, glue gun
crayons, colored bubble pops, and all sorts of other
craziness. am so excited to start!
