For a small sum of money
Ben bought a pet bunny,
then figured he’d buy
just one more.

Ben felt some regrets,
because his two pets
soon became
four hundred and four!

Excess is the theme for Illustration Friday this week. So I once again dusted off a page of the children’s book I’ve been working on, (it’s been coming in pretty handy.)

I wrote this silly little rhyme and drew Ben and his bunnies about a year ago. It seemed fairly apropo for the theme.

I love it when things come together like that.

    haha so funny, I love the bunny expression. We’ve got a song titled ‘ gang kelinci’ means the rabbit alley, the story is about an alley with many family with many children, the amount is similar as your illo- I think?! 😀

    Thanks everyone, for all the wonderful encouraging comments!

    Gina, that’s interesting about the song “gang kelinci”. It would be great to hear it sometime. Is it a funny song or sad? I suppose that subject could go either way, eh?

    Bambi, be careful what you wish for, hee hee.
